I’m a PhD student at the Helmholtz-Centre for Environmental Research - UFZ, Leipzig and at the Institute for Geography at the Leipzig University. Coming from an ecological background, my PhD-project focuses on the application of remote sensing data for biodiversity assessments. I aim at testing the reliability of the relationship between the spectral variation in remotely sensed image data and the species/ trait diversity of grasslands on different spatial and spectral scales. In the course of my project, I combine ecological fieldwork with remote sensing methods and simulation techniques.
