Personal profile

Personal Statement

I studied atmospheric science at the Leibniz University in Hannover, Germany. Here, I developed my interest in satellite remote sensing, which brought me to the University of Miami, USA to pursue a PhD in applied marine physics. My dissertation involved studying hurricane winds and waves from satellites. In 2018, I started a position as a teaching associate at the University of Strathclyde. At the department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, I helped to develop a new MSc course in Satellite Applications. Part of this new course are three different modules addressing different aspects of satellite applications: from data science and programming in python to the United Nation's sustainable development goals.

Research Interests

I am particulary interested in disaster mangement from satellite data, as well as any observations (atmospheric, geological, archeological, oceanographic etc) that can be done via remote sensing.
