Abstract

I work as a research assistant in the intersection of physical geography and geoinformatics/remote sensing on geoarchaeological, geomorphological and sedimentological issues. The focus is on analysing human-environment interactions and landscape genesis, which are investigated in interdisciplinary research projects.

Methodologically, I deal with the combination of different minimal and non-invasive exploration methods on different spatial scales to answer the questions. In particular, I focus on the application and implementation of direct push sensing in these approaches. Furthermore, I concentrate on analysing geodata with the help of geographic information systems (GIS).
