I’m a PostDoc at Leipzig University. I am a plant ecologist fascinated by remote sensing technology. I am interested in how biodiversity impacts temporally and spatially ecosystem functions. I have an interest in using remote sensing (such as terrestrial laser scanning, hyperspectral signals) and machine learning techniques to predict biodiversity ecosystem-functioning relationships.
