Major Research Interests

Application of operational and experimental Earth observation sensors in the optical, thermal and microwave domains (with a focus on radar) for geoscientific applications. Special expertise is on global satellite monitoring concepts for land surface analyses to support climate change topics. As expert for e-infrastructures to the German Future Earth Committee, interests also concern big data handling from the Sentinel-satellites and in situ networks.
