Biography

I previously worked as a PostDoc at the University of Goettingen in Germany – where I also took my PhD in Forest Sciences and Forest Ecology. Before that I finished my Masters degree in Geoinformation Science and Earth Observation for Environment Modelling and Management at Lund University in Sweden and at the University of Twente in the Netherlands.

I have experience integrating field inventory and remote sensing data to monitor, report and verify forest area, forest structure and carbon stock and I am generally interested in forest inventory assisted by remote sensing.

At NIBIO, my main tasks are connected to research on the monitoring and mapping of deforestation, forest degradation and associated carbon dynamics in tropical forests and woodlands within the context of climate change mitigation.
