Anderson Ruhoff holds a doctorate degree in Water Resources  from the Institute of Hydraulic Research at the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul. He also holds a master’s degree in Remote Sensing and an graduate degree in Geography from the Federal University of Santa Maria. He currently works as associate professor at the Institute of Hydraulic Research, teaching Hydrometeorology and Climatology to Hydrological and Environmental Engineering undergraduate students and GIS and Remote Sensing at the Postgraduate Program in Water Resources. He has also worked as a research associate at the University of Exeter and as a visiting researcher at the Environmental Change Institute from the University of Oxford and at the Cooperative Remote Sensing Science and Technology Centre from the City University of New York. He also contributed to research projects from the Earth Observing System Program (EOS) to estimate global evapotranspiration using MODIS data. Anderson Ruhoff has experience in remote sensing applied to hydrometeorology and climatology and his research focuses mainly on the following topics: estimations of evapotranspiration using thermal remote sensing data, surface energy fluxes, carbon fluxes, drought monitoring and land use and land cover dynamics.
