Elizabet Estallo





Elizabet Lilia Estallo is a scientist at CONICET (National Scientific and Technical Research Council) in the Instituto de Investigaciones Biológicas y Tecnológicas de Córdoba (IIBYT). Elizabet is a specialist in vector moquitos, works with vector-borne diseases, and the relation with the environment through meteorological and remote sensing data. Their current projects involve Citizen Science, involving the community in the mosquitos borne diseases, environment, heat island and diversity-related. She is a National Geographic explorer, she did a Fulbright scholar program at Clark University, at the USA working with species distribution models and remote sensing, she did a professional training in Milan, Italy through the Italian Spatial Agency (ASI) and the Argentina Space Agency (CONAE). Skilled in Remote Sensing Applications, Spatial Analysis, Geographic Information Systems, Global Positioning System (GPS). Strong research professional with a Ph.D focused in Biology Sciences from Universidad Nacional de Córdoba. At the teen age she was a Rotary club exchange student at Ojai Rotary Club in California , USA (1995-1996).
