At the moment, she has over eight years of work experience leading and implementing projects including:
Optimization of oil wells waste management and monitoring the environmental impact of O&G companies.
Driving energy efficiency by capturing biogas from the water treatment of a manufacturing plant of ABInBev.
Reducing the waste tracks frequency in Buenos Aires, applying design thinking to drive cultural change.

She came to Australia with a scholarship to study a Master of Geographic Information Systems (Honours) at the University of Western Australia, which complemented her engineering background with spatial analytical and modelling tools. She graduated with high distinction (6.9/7 GPA). Her research thesis included modeling water processes on the urban environment to predict the impacts climate change and urbanization have on urban stormwater processes and present a new management approach to store water and reduce urban floods.
Belen joined the GIS team at Select Carbon and works quantifying land-use change and forest cover over time through a combination of satellite imagery algorithms, statistical analysis, and geographical information systems.
