Roxanne Suzette Lorilla was born in Athens, Greece in 1992. She received her Bachelor’s degree in Environmental Technology and her Master’s degree in Geoinformatics in 2014 and 2016, respectively. She holds a Ph.D. in Geography and Spatial Analysis from the Harokopio University of Athens.


Her doctoral research was supported by the Hellenic Foundation for Research and Innovation (HFRI) and the General Secretariat for Research and Technology (GSRT), under the HFRI Ph.D. Fellowship grant. Roxanne’s field of expertise is mapping and assessing ecosystem services, analyzing the complex relationships among them, and revealing the socio-ecological determinants of the supply of and demand for ecosystem services. Through her experience as an environmental scientist, she has gained advanced skills in applied spatial analysis and ecosystem assessment, to which she integrates Geoinformatics tools, including GIS, Remote Sensing, Computer Modelling, and Programming. She has contributed to peer-reviewed scientific articles, conference papers and presentations of research studies on ecosystem services, landscape modelling and biodiversity integrity. Currently, Roxanne is co-guest editing two special issues, one on “Tools for ecosystem services quantification and valuation” (https://www.aimspress.com/newsinfo/1428.html), and one on “Advances in Machine Learning and Statistical Analysis of Geographical Data” (https://www.mdpi.com/journal/ijgi/special_issues/MachineLearning_Statistical).
