Carla Mora has a PhD in Physical Geography from the University of Lisbon (2005) on mountain climatology. Her research interests focus on mountain climates, remote sensing of snow and vegetation, and on the effects of climate change on permafrost environments. She has participated in various research projects in the Antarctic Peninsula, the Arctic (Svalbard and Canada), Morocco and Cape Verde, as well as in Portugal. Carla Mora is principal investigator of the project THAWPOND on remote sensing of permafrost thaw lakes in northern Quebec.
