I am a remote sensing expert and I have specialized in lake water quality applications after studying geography. It fascinates me to observe the Earth from a satellite’s perspective, and to harness the potential of these observations for environmental sciences.
As head of the Remote Sensing Group, I investigate two overarching questions:
- How can we derive water quality and other environmental indicators for lakes from passive optical and thermal measurements by satellites and from ground-level platforms?
- Which natural processes and environmental changes can be studied with satellite data, and how can sampling and models improve the interpretation of satellite data?
