dr. F.O. Ostermann (Frank)

Associate Professor

About Me

My main research interest is where people, geography, and computer science meet: new modes of production and usage of geographic information (crowdsourced and volunteered), related technological and methodological developments (machine learning and edge computing on environmental IoT sensors), and improving scientific practice (ethics of consent and preservation of privacy, open and reproducible research). Citizen Science is where all these elements come together.
