About Me

Since April, 1 2020, I serve as Dean of the Faculty Geo-information and Earth Observation (ITC).

As professor I am focusing on geothermal energy and earth resources specialized in the use of spectroscopic techniques and hyperspectral remote sensing. My education and research focuses on the Energy Transition.

Research

My research focuses on the use of earth observation data primarily hyperspectral data for exploration of geothermal systems and for the longterm monitoring of such systems and their response to natural and external drivers. This work contributes to the energy transition. I also work on other earth resources such as raw materials and oil and gas.
