Research Interest:

  • Sentine-1 Time series
  • Frequency Analysis
  • Non-Stationary Time series
  • Datacubes for high resolution earth observation data

Current Research:

I am working on the analysis of hypertemporal Sentinel-1 time series data to better understand processes on the land surface. I am mainly using the Empirical Mode Decomposition to decompose the Sentinel-1 data into different temporal frequencies. By doing that we can separate processes with different temporal behaviours to look at them separately.
