We welcome Johannes as new PhD student within our EO hub. Johannes studied Geography at the Leibniz University of Hannover with a focus on Physical Geography and Geoinformatics, concluding with a bachelor’s thesis at the Department of of Geo-Risks and Civil Security of the German Aerospace Center (DLR). To further explore the potential of earth observation data, he subsequently enrolled in the EAGLE graduate program at the Julius-Maximilians-University of Würzburg. The flexible structure of the EAGLE program and the strong network of the Department of Remote Sensing allowed Johannes to complement his studies with practical work as student assistant and intern at the Department of Remote Sensing, the Slovenian Academy of Sciences, and the DLR, conducting open-source software development and supporting research on Water Management, Archaeology, and Urban Geography.

After completing his master’s thesis in collaboration with the department of Geo-Risks and Civil Security of the DLR, Johannes joined the department as a PhD student in the MIGRAWARE and FPCUP projects, and became part of the Earth Observation research hub in November 2022. In his research, Johannes jointly uses remote sensing data and social media data to study human migration, with a focus on Western Africa.
