Scott Polar Research Institute
Olga Tutubalina is a Royal Society Wolfson Visiting Fellow at the Scott Polar Research Institute, University of Cambridge. After her first degree in Geography and Cartography in Moscow, Russia, she read for an MPhil and a PhD in Polar Remote Sensing and had a Research Fellowship in Polar Geography at Cambridge. Then she returned to Moscow State University and taught there for 20 years. Her research focuses on high-altitude and high-latitude environments. She has studied glacial hazards in the Caucasus, the Pamirs, the Peruvian Andes and St Elias Mountains. However, at the start of her career and more recently she focussed on northern vegetation in the Russian Arctic and Siberia and how it reacts to pollution and climate change. She has ample field experience in these regions and is developing algorithms to process optical imagery and to upscale from ground and UAV measurements to satellite data. Her other interest is in precision agriculture aided by surveys from UAVs and satellite imagery.
