I am highly motivated and adaptable specialist in the field of remote sensing and GIS with experience in SAR/optical data processing and image processing tool development. In the course of my studies at various international institutions, I have acquired not only solid theoretical knowledge but also strong problem solving and teamwork skills. Which I have expanded further during yearlong traineeship at European Space Agency - ESRIN and consequently as remote sensing researcher at C‑CORE.

COMMUNICATION AND TEAMWORK
I developed strong interpersonal communication and teamwork skills during my work at ESA and C-CORE where communication with various parties interested in a project is a crucial part of my work as well as good presentation and written communication skills developed when participating in workshops and conferences.
ANALYSIS AND PROBLEM SOLVING
During my thesis research and consequent work experience, I successfully faced issues new to me such as large dataset management (its assembly, gaps filling and further arrangement), handling new data sources and successfully developing a new processing methodologies
Successful study and work in UK, Netherlands, Canada and Italy demonstrate my ability to adapt and thrive in new and different environments.
