Emmalina Glinskis is the Head of Deployment working to deliver Floodbase's near-real time flood data to diverse users and stakeholders worldwide, translating the science to relevant country-wide action, planning, and response. She is broadly interested in coastal urban resilience to extreme events and sea level rise due to climate change through geospatial analysis, policy intervention, and green infrastructure & design. Her previous research background is in remote sensing applications to land use change, particularly at the nexus of deforestation and agroecology in tropical countries. After receiving a Bachelor's in Environmental Science from Columbia University, she pursued further ecological research in Antarctica and India, where she most recently completed a Fulbright Research Award focusing on landscape resilience and biomass mapping of smallholder rain-fed coffee agroforestry systems.
