Geography & Conflict landscapes

Welcome on the personnal website of Rémi de Matos Machado, Ph.D. student at Université Paris-Diderot.

My research focuses on conflict landscapes, especially on the Verdun battlefield. It includes multidisciplinary approaches:

  • Remote sensing and GIS: LiDAR data processing, landforms recognition and extraction from DEMs, battlefield maps
  • Geomorphology: morphometric analysis of conflict-induced landforms, understanding of erosion processes
  • Archaeology: surface survey, battlefield and landforms interpretation
  • Statistics: multivariate analysis (self-organising maps, principal component analysis, hierarchical ascendant classification), landforms classification
  • Computer programming: semi-automatic mapping
  • Ecology: flooded shell holes inventory

On this page, you can find information about my research activities, CV and publications.
