About me


PhD in Applied Physics / area of Earth observation - 2012 MSc in Applied Physics / radiative transfer processes - 2009 MSc in Environmental management - 2007 BSc in Marine Sciences - 2005

My research interests predominantly lie in the areas of light propagation and light-matter interaction in natural waters and in the use of near-ground, airborne and satellite remote sensing (RS) of aquatic environments including lakes, estuaries, coastal zones and open seas. While my research is centrered around RS and underwater light climate, my scienti¿c objectives are driven by fundamental questions on dynamics and processes in aquatic ecosystems and on the impact of human and climate induced environmental change on them.
