Welcome to my academic website

I hold a PhD in geophysics with concentration in remote sensing from the University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF), and a German Diplom (equivalent to a Master's degree) in physics from the University of Heidelberg. Between the two degrees, I my career took me to France and the UK in a variety of roles, including teaching in the public secondary school system and operational engineering support in the software industry. Currently, I divide my time between two part-time roles: post-doctoral research in the Boreal Fires team of the Alaska EPSCoR Fire and Ice project at UAF and teaching appointments in the UAF College of Natural Science and Mathematics.
