About me

As a genuine geographer, my interests cover a broad range from geology, land system science to geoecology. So far, the arctic tundra has been a major focus of mine.

Satellite Earth Observation constitutes the main method for my research. In combination with programming and statistical/machine learning, it satifies the techy-side of me.
