About me

I am a PhD student in the Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing Lab, ETH Zürich My supervisors are Prof. Konrad Schindler and Prof. Devis Tuia.

My research work combines theoretical advancements with practical applications, contributing to fields such as population mapping. As a researcher, I specialize in computer vision and remote sensing, with a focus on super-resolution techniques. I developed POMELO, a system for super-resolving African population census data and have also innovatively combined deep learning with anisotropic diffusion to enhance monocular depth images. In my earlier works, I employed neural ordinary differential equations to model the satellite time series for crop classification.
