Remote Sensing for Forest Applications

Swiss National Forest Inventory

I work for national and international projects and programs which are mostly related to forestry and supervise master and PhD students. My specific research interests are: Detecting the state-of-the art and modeling changes (natural and human-made) of landscapes, with focus on forests, using modelling techniques and high-resolution remotely sensed data: airborne digital sensors, Airborne Laser Scanning (ALS), Terrestrial Laser Scanning (TLS), and spaceborne sensors. I have particular research interests in spatially estimating forest parameters (area, species, timber volume etc.) on stand or national level, modelling in the forestry sector using sample plots, and correlation of remote sensing data with biodiversity, e.g. in wetlands.
