Madeleine is the lead environmental data scientist at Cultivo Land PBC. She has a background in environmental science with a focus on water resources and computer science. She obtained her PhD from the French Geological Survey working on at-risk aquifers in Southern India.
She is currently using remote sensing and cloud computing to accelerate and modernize the Nature Based Solutions (NbS) industry. Thanks to her work, assessing the potential of any given plot of land to become a nature generator can be done within minutes. This allows her company to identify and fund high quality projects which not only increase carbon storage and avoid emissions, but that also create better livelihoods for rural communities, improve water quality and quantity, and increase biodiversity by repairing and protecting at-risk ecosystems.
