I started my university career at KIT (former University of Karlsruhe (TH)) in 1997 as a student of Surveying. I graduated in 2003 and did my PhD at the Institute for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing at KIT. In 2006 I obtained my doctoral degree in Engineering Sciences. Since 2007 I have been an academic at the University of Concepción, Chile. At this moment I am an Associate Professor at the University of Concepción and Head of the Department for Geodetic Sciences and Geomatics, which forms professionals in the area of Topography, Surveying and Geomatics since 1963. My current research is focused on climate change and environmental studies. Most of them are based on remote sensing techniques and visualization of data from a huge variety of sources (sensor fusion).
