Computer Vision and Earth Observation


C'est moi I am Assistant Professor for Computer Vision at the University of St. Gallen's School of Computer Science. My research combines computer vision with Earth observation, thereby leveraging scalable Deep Learning approaches to extract knowledge from remote sensing data. By implementing new methodological approaches and tailoring existing methods in combination with unique, targeted datasets, my team and I are able to address a wide range of environmental, economic, and societal issues.

In my previous life, I worked as an astronomer, exploring asteroids and comets in our Solar System and building open source software tools to make astronomers' lifes easier.
