Marc Wieland

Postdoctoral Research Assistant

Marc is a Postdoctoral Research Assistant focusing on Geographical Information Science at the Department of Zoology, University of Oxford. He obtained a first degree in Geography with minors in Biology and Economy from the University of Heidelberg and a PhD from the Technical University of Berlin, Germany. During his PhD he developed an integrated approach and the tools to estimate exposure for rapid seismic vulnerability assessment based on remote sensing and in-situ omnidirectional camera images.

Before joining the University of Oxford, he worked as a Postdoctoral Research Scientist on remote sensing and spatio-temporal data mining in the context of earthquake risk assessment, early warning and rapid response at the GFZ German Research for Geosciences, Germany. Recently, he has been awarded a research grant by the Japanese Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) and has spent 5 months as a visiting researcher at Chiba University in Japan to work on statistical pattern recognition in multi-temporal SAR imagery.

His research interests include geo-information science and earth observation, digital image processing, machine learning and spatio-temporal data mining.
