Dr. Viña's research is mainly focused on understanding the processes shaping the spatio-temporal patterns of vegetation and their consequences on both human and natural systems with the help of data collected by remote sensors operating at multiple scales. His recent research has been oriented towards the development of novel techniques for analyzing the dynamics of wildlife habitat, understory vegetation and plant biodiversity at broad geographic regions.
