I am a full professor at the Department of Geoinformatics of Munich University of Applied Sciences (MUAS). Due to my habilitation in 2018, I have also been an Adjunct Teaching Professor at the Department of Aerospace and Geodesy of TUM since March 2019.
Before joining MUAS, I was a senior researcher at Signal Processing in Earth Observation (SiPEO), a joint venture of the Technical University of Munich (TUM), and the German Aerospace Center (DLR). In summer 2016, I was a guest scientist at the Microwave Remote Sensing Laboratory of the University of Massachusetts Amherst.
Before joining SiPEO, I worked as interim Chair manager and deputy of the professor at the Chair for Remote Sensing Technology (Prof. Richard Bamler), also a TUM-DLR joint venture, and as scientific staff member at Prof. Uwe Stilla’s Professorship for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing at TUM.
My technical passion is in the fields of Earth observation and geospatial data science, i.e. I work on the extraction of geospatial information from different kinds of remote sensing data. For this purpose, I use techniques from fields such as signal/image processing, machine learning or data fusion.
