Research Interests

During my Ph.D., I will investigate how disturbances like droughts and fires affect tundra ecosystems in the Siberian tundra. For that I collect data in the field, from airborne instruments and analyze spaceborne observations. My Ph.D. contributes to the upcoming TRISHNA mission that will provide high-resolution thermal remote sensing data of the earth’s surface. My main interests are earth observation, time series analyses of remote sensing data and geospatial programming.
