New team member: Christoph Friedrich

May 5, 2023

With the beginning of May, Christoph Friedrich joined us as new staff in the AgriSens DEMMIN 4.0 project! Having recently completed his master’s studies in computer science at the University of Münster, he will now contribute to the IT force within the project. At the same time, he is a real geo guy: He earned his bachelor’s degree in Geoinformatics, specialised in climatology and remote sensing through extracurricular courses, and further continued to work within Edzer Pebesma’s working group at the Institute for Geoinformatics during his master’s studies.

This is also where he first got in touch – and love – with the topic of Earth Observation imagery: Being a student assistant within openEO, Christoph helped to realise this European research project’s aim of developing a standardised API that allows access to big EO data processing backends in a simple and unified way. The knowledge of datacubes he acquired in this context will now be of great help to the AgriSens DEMMIN 4.0 project, as will his skills and passion for enjoyable frontend design and good web-based user interfaces.
