Eleonora Canfora has a degree in Biological Sciences and a PhD in Forestry Sciences. Her background concerns Plant Biology and Vegetation Ecology with regard to remote sensing analysis.
She worked at the University of Rome “La Sapienza” (1986-1996) on the structural analysis of vegetation by remote sensing studies, ecophysiological and leaf area index measurements. From 2004 she worked at the University of Tuscia in Viterbo to realize and manage the European Database that collects, process and standardizes the data sent by circa 200 European sites and 30 African sites. In this area she worked in processing data for numerous works of synthesis in the European projects as CarboeuropeIP, IMECC and in the African project CarboAfrica.
Actually she is co-Manager of the European Fluxes Database Cluster , the European and African portal to the FLUXNET, integrating worldwide CO2, water, and energy flux measurements. The Database has been collecting data since 1996. She is also member of the scientific staff of the Ecosystem Thematic Centre (ETC) of the platform ICOS (Integrated Carbon Observation System) in Europe. In this unit, where CMCC, UNITUS, University of Antwerp and the INRA are partners, she cooperates to fluxes and meteo data processing, with particular reference to Associated site.
