About

I am a Remote Sensing Scientist at the Alaska Satellite Facility (ASF), Geophysical Institute, University of Alaska Fairbanks, USA. I earned my M.Sc. degree in Surveying and Mapping as well as a doctoral degree in Engineering from the University of Hannover, Germany. My research specialization is in the processing and applications of synthetic aperture radar (SAR) and Interferometric SAR (InSAR) data. At ASF I have developed a variety of software tools for making SAR data more accessible and usable, have provided technical support to a large remote sensing user community, and have used satellite data to improve understanding of the changing Arctic landscapes and the processes guiding these changes. I am also a cooperating faculty at the Department of Geology and Geophysics at UAF, where I teach courses in the principles and applications of SAR and InSAR. I also deliver customized training courses and conference workshops. I am an associate editor of the International Journal of Remote Sensing, a senior member of the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society, and the co-chair of the ISPRS VII/2 working group on SAR interferometry.
