About

I studied Geography at the University of Würzburg (Germany) from 2002 to 2008, with geology and botany as minor subjects. During my main study period I started specializing in GIS and remote sensing and did an internship at the German Aerospace Center (DLR). I conducted my diploma thesis within the framework of a development research project in Uzbekistan that is doing research on restructuring land and water use (www.khorezm.uni-bonn.de) working on the combination of object and pixel based methods for crop classification using multi-source remote sensing data. After finishing my studies I received a PhD scholarship and stayed with the project. I am currently working at the Remote Sensing Unit of the University of Würzburg and doing research on crop yield modelling via the combination of remote sensing time-series and production efficiency models on multiple scales, using RapidEye and MODIS data. Besides that, I am interested in field methods, land use classification, data validation, accuracy assessment and modelling.
