Open Supervision

None at the moment.

If you have your own idea for a master’s project and are enrolled in Lund University (at INES or CEC), I may be able to supervise you provided you are: (1) a self-starter, (2) have strong foundations in remote sensing, GIS, and basic statistics as evidenced by graduate-level coursework, and (3) have experience in, or are willing to learn, programming (e.g. R, Python, etc.) and quantitative methods (e.g. machine learning).


Ongoing supervision

Camilla Persson (M.Sc. in Geomatics):

Thesis Title - Comparing the vegetation condition of 2017 and 2018 over southern Sweden using Sentinel-2 satellite imagery.

Emma Bylund (M.Sc. in Geographic Information Systems):

Thesis Title - An analysis of the causes of the 2004 and 2007 desert locust outbreaks in Niger and Yemen and their implications on food security using remote sensing and GIS.
