Research Group of Computational Geo-Ecology (IBED-CGE)
We investigate the behavior and distribution of species at multiple scales in the context of global ecology and geo-bio conservation. To this end, we develop and apply technology to collect accurate and reliable observations through GPS tracking, various radar systems, Lidar and Remote Sensing. At the analysis-side, we combine data-driven with concept-driven modelling and actively develop techniques for model identification and data-model integration techniques.
Both our observational work as well as our models generate extremely large data sets. We develop Virtual Laboratories, with tools for data visualization, explorative and inferential analysis, to handle these in a transparent and reproducible way and share knowledge efficiently with our collaborators in and the wider the scientific community.
