Über:I lead the spatio-temporal modelling laboratory at the institute for geoinformatics, and am currently head of institute. I hold a PhD in geosciences, and am interested in spatial statistics, environmental modelling, geoinformatics and GI Science, semantic technology for spatial analysis, optimizing environmental monitoring, but also in e-Science and reproducible research. I am an ordinary member of the R foundation. I am one of the authors of Spatial Data Science: With applications in R, and the older volume Applied Spatial Data Analysis with R (second edition), am a section editor for the Journal of Statistical Software (2015-2021) and former associate editor of Spatial Statistics (stepped down because lack of progress in Project DEAL). I believe that research is useful in particular when it helps solving real-world problems.
