My current research activities concentrate on multidisciplinary approaches, with a strong focus on monitoring land use cover and land use cover change. The research projects comprises the development of advanced image processing techniques including state-of-the art classification methods. A particular focus is the synergetic usage of optical and SAR data. A particular focus is the synergetic usage of optical and SAR data. The current regional focus of is Eastern Europe, Brazilian Amazon and Germany.
