Pilar Pampin is an agronomist with a farming background, who was born and raised in Uruguay. Since 2020 she has lived in United Kingdom, where she completed her Master's studies in Agroecology at Harper Adams University. She currently works in LEAF (Linking Environment and Farming), a UK-based charity leading in the delivery of sustainable food and farming. Dr Matthias Kuhnert is an environmental modeller, with a wide range of experience in using data from different scales. His recent focus was on simulations of greenhouse gas emissions and soil organic carbon changes in croplands, impacts of data aggregation on model results and the development of measuring, reporting and verification systems for soil organic carbon.
