Earth observation and geoscience
One of the great things about machine learning algorithms is that they can be applied to so many different fields and problems, that’s one of the main reasons why working with them is so fascinating. Due to my passion for mountains, snow and remote areas like Greenland or Svalbard, linking them with geoscience and glaciology was kind of obvious for me.
Thus I’m very excited about my current collaboration with Jakob Abermann from the Department of Geography and Regional Science about the application of deep learning algorithms to geoscience.
Evaluation of satellite data
In 2018 together with Thomas Gölles I also co-founded our start-up company ATSEDA AB in Sweden, where we started with providing data science services for industry applications and later changed our focus entirely to evaluations of satellite imagery and climate data based on time series and neural networks.
We have been accepted to the ESA Business Incubation Center in Graz and are currently organizing the transition of ATSEDA from Sweden to Austria.
