Senior Scientist | Head of Research Group

My motivation for my applied research is to bridge the social and ecological divides we are currently facing at global and local levels. I aim to achieve this through the development of new concepts, methods and tools to capture complex and multi-dimensional phenomena (such as risk and vulnerability) through systems thinking and in a spatial-explicit manner.

With my research, I aim to gain a better understanding of natural hazards, their interactions and cascading effects, and their impacts on the environment and society. I focus on the development of remote sensing-based methods for landslide mapping and monitoring, studying spatio-temporal landscape dynamics, and bridging natural and social science methods in an interdisciplinary manner.

Dr. Florian Albrecht

My research interest is to understand what makes remotely sensed geographic information valuable in specific application contexts, particularly in landslide hazards management and in urban and infrastructure planning. Therefore, I focus on gathering user requirements and quality criteria that ensure useful outcomes of geographic information production.
