About us

Meet the team

  • Tobias Landmann Remote sensing

    Tobias is an earth observation expert that specializes in integrative mapping and modelling (e.g. land degradation, epidemiology, crop productivity). His particular focus is land surface dynamics, semi-automatic modelling or mapping, devising curricula and managing EO projects.

  • Iris Haberkorn Marketing & administration

    Iris has worked for RSS since 2010. With her extensive experience in marketing & communications, she happily assists the RSS Team with all administrative and management matters.

  • Werner Wiedemann Remote sensing & GIS

    Werner is highly specialized in digital image processing for remotely-sensed data, as well as GIS-based landscape analyses and modeling. He studied cartography and geomedia technologies in Munich.

  • Jonas Franke Managing director

    Jonas is a geographer whose expertise lies in earth observation and environmental monitoring. He manages international R&D, joint projects, and also advises organizations on conservation, risk assessment and monitoring techniques.

  • Abhishek Manandhar Software development

    Abhi is a satellite applications engineer with expertise in large-scale software development. He is currently responsible for envisioning automated remote sensing and GIS applications that resolve key processing challenges.

  • Claudius Mott Remote sensing & GIS

    Claudius is a biologist with over 15 years’ experience in earth observation. He possesses a professional breadth of knowledge in aquatic remote sensing (coral reefs, coastal ecosystems) and international conservation guidelines.

  • Isabel Karst Remote sensing & GIS

    Isabel’s expertise lies in versatile applications of (radar) remote sensing and GIS in an environmental context, e.g. Land Use Classification. She studied environmental engineering at the TU Darmstadt.

  • Elizabeth Atwood Marine research

    Liz brings a background in marine biology, oceanography and statistical modeling to the team. Her work focuses on developing methods to monitor plastic debris distributions in rivers and ocean gyres.

  • Anna Berninger Forest research (SAR)

    Anna’s skills lie in geoinformatics and remote sensing. Her research concentrates on monitoring tropical forests using radar and involves SAR analysis, interferometry and polarimetry.

  • Yannic Fetik Forestry

    Yannic is a trained forest engineer and holds an M.Sc. in geoinformatics. He has a passion for forests, data analytics and machine learning.

  • Florian Siegert Founding director

    With extensive knowledge in ecology and more than 20 years of remote sensing experience, Florian initiates, designs and manages large international projects. He also teaches environmental monitoring at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität.

  • Natalie Cornish Remote sensing & GIS

    Natalie’s background lies in environmental monitoring, particularly using multi or hyperspectral data. Her current responsibilities include wetland, drought and crop monitoring as well as 3D destination marketing.

  • Stefan Kirmaier Software development

    Stefan is a remote sensing and GIS specialist with a background in geoinformatics. His work deals predominantly with process and workflow automatization, as well as software development.

  • Sandra Lohberger (Englhart) Synthetic Aperture Radar

    With a PhD in environmental monitoring using radar remote sensing, Sandra's expertise includes multi-sensor carbon stock estimation, environmental monitoring and field campaigns. She manages SAR, forestry and R&D projects.
