Research priorities

Environmental Remote Sensing

My research focus is remote sensing of the environment, in particular forest and agricultural systems. Currently, I'm working on the AI-Klima project with partners from the Bavarian Forest National Park, Sumava National Park and the University of South Bohemia. My tasks in the project include remote sensing analyses of long-term trends in tree phenology and tree species composition under climate change.
