Roles and functions
- Deputy director
- Head: GIScience Division
- Member of Austrian Academy of Sciences
- Speaker: Doktoratskolleg Geographic Information Science
Integrating methods and domain knowledge into spatial analysis and GIS-based spatial decision support systems. Technically, I contribute to bridging object-based image analysis and Geographic Information Science (GIScience).
