Research interests and running projects

I am geographer and did my PhD in Geoinformatics and Physical Geography. I investigate and develop computational methods and algorithms for the geographic analysis of 3D/4D point clouds. The main objective of my research is to increase our fundamental understanding of geographic phenomena by observing and analyzing them in full 3D, in near real-time with high spatial and temporal resolution. I love field work with our fantastic 3D tools, code new things mainly with Python/C++, and I am a highly motivated university teacher.

Geographic 3D/4D Point Cloud Analysis
Geoprocessing Algorithms for GIS
Virtual Laser Scanning
3D Crowdsourcing and 3D Micro-Mapping
