I am an Assistant Professor in Land Cover and Land Use Dynamics at the Institute for Biodiversity and Ecosystem Dynamics (IBED) at the University of Amsterdam. My work focuses on combining various Earth Observation datasets (e.g. satellite, LiDAR, and/or RADAR) with advanced spatio-temporal modelling, informatics, and artificial intelligence to gain new insights into the impact of land cover and land use change on biodiversity, ecosystem services, and animal habitats. Specifically, my research interests lie in 3D ecosystem structure features derived from LiDAR, species-specific traits derived from multi-source remote sensing data (e.g. hyperspectral, multispectral, LiDAR), and biodiversity monitoring using machine learning at a national or continental scale.
