About Me

Since more than five years, I am working with unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and UAV data. I received her B.Sc. from Dresden Technical University and her master’s degree from University of Innsbruck.  As a geographer by training, I first focused on high resolution surface reconstruction to study soil erosion in Spain. Fascinated by the almost unlimited capabilities of UAVs for data capture, I am pursuing a PhD at ITC, University of Twente in The Netherlands. My research focuses on UAV-based land tenure data acquisition workflows in East Africa. This work is associated with the EU H2020 project its4land (www.its4land.com).
