I obtained my BSc degree in International Field Geosciences from Potsdam University in Germany and the University of Montana in the USA. In 2017, I received my MSc degree in Geosciences at Potsdam University. During my BSc and MSc studies, I was involved in variety of topics related to sedimentology, hyperspectral imaging, petroleum geology, geochemistry, remote sensing, and 3D geological subsurface modelling. I spent several years working as a research assistant at the Institute of Earth and Environmental Science at the Potsdam University as well as at the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ). After completion of my MSc study, I joined DEA Deutsche Erdöl AG working as an Application Analyst for Geo Applications.
In 2020, I started my PhD study at the Institute of Geo-Hydroinformatics at Hamburg University of Technology. My PhD research focuses on soil salinization which is a global problem and is of crucial importance in various environmental and hydrologic processes such as terrestrial ecosystem functioning, microbial activities and biodiversity in vadose zone. I utilize a variety of tools and approaches including pore-scale experimental analysis, field scale measurement, remote sensing as well as physics-informed machine learning investigations to describe soil salinization from pore to global scale under a variety of boundary conditions.
