I am particularly interested in time series analyses of optical remote sensing data in service of natural environment and climate change related studies. To date, I have been involved in several research and commercial projects dealing with change detection and analyses of medium to long term time series of satellite datasets, conducted at local, regional, as well as continental scale. I enjoy exploring huge multidimensional datasets, and identifying underlying spatio-temporal patterns. During my time in the SILVIS lab I am exploring land degradation in the Caucasus, and trying to understand its drivers.
In those (rare) moments when I am not in my office habitat, I am most likely to be found cycling, or fixing bikes / working on my next bike project (n+1). I enjoy being active and exploring the world… but at the end of a day there is nothing better than to sit down with a book and a mug of (green) tea… happiness is to be found in simple things!
