M. Larry  Lopez C.

I graduated with the degree of Bachelor in Meteorology from the Faculty of Science, Universidad Nacional Agraria La Molina, Lima, Peru. From 1995 to 2003, with the sponsorship of MEXT (Ministry of Education and Sports of Japan), I joined the MSc and Ph.D. Program at the  Graduate School of Environmental Sciences, Hokkaido University. 
Work Experience:
2003 to 2007, Post-doc at the Institute of Low Temperature, Hokkaido University.
2008 to 2011, Project Lecturer at the United Graduate School of Agricultural Sciences, Iwate University.
2011 to 2018, Professor in the Department of Forestry at the Faculty of Agriculture of Yamagata University.
My research interest is on forest carbon, water and nutrient cycles and in recent years the use of Deep Learning to design more efficient and precise models to monitor forest ecosystems using UAV-acquired images.
