New team member: Sophie Hebden, ESA/Future Earth liaison officer


​Sophie Hedben joins the ESA Climate Office as part of a secondment from the global sustainability research network Future Earth and is charged with managing joint activities to maximise the use of CCI data.

Her work will include communicating and supporting ESA and Future Earth’s engagement with the UNFCCC and the major global convening organisations for climate and Earth observations.

Sophie comes to Future Earth from the National Centre for Earth Observation at the University of Leicester, where she coordinated UK representation at the major international initiatives the Group on Earth Observations and the Committee on Earth Observation Satellites. Her research interests are in using land surface temperature datasets to evaluate coupled climate models, and setting up 'in-situ' sites for measuring land surface temperature.
