Since March 1st I have been working as a PostDoc at the Federal Office of Meteorology and Climatology MeteoSwiss in Zurich. I am involved in European Space Agency project: Climate Change Initiative - Clouds. General information can be found on the project website, and the MeteoSwiss contribution is decribed here.
From 2010 to 2012 I was a researcher at the Monitoring Agricultural Resources Unit (MARS) in the Institute of Environment and Sustainability (IES) of the European Commission's Joint Research Centre (JRC) since January 2010. I am also a PhD candidate at the University of Twente, Faculty of Geo-Information Science and Earth Observation (ITC) in the Netherlands.
My research focused on the assimilation of the remotely sensed surface solar radiation in the Crop Growth Monitoring System (CGMS). The objective of my study was to improve the crop yield predictions through decreasing the uncertainty of the meteorological input parameters using Meteosat Second Generation data. More details can be found here.
I studied geography at the University of Warsaw in Poland. I received a bachelor in 2003 and a M.Sc. in remote sensing at the Department of Geoinformatics and Remote Sensing in 2005 for my thesis Atmospheric correction of the satellite images using the 6S model in the GRASS-R environment.
From 2005 to 2009 I worked in the Remote Sensing Department of the Institute of Geodesy and Cartography (IGiK) in Warsaw. My research focused on the usage of remote sensing information in the crop yield forecasting. I co-developed a semi-automatic system of the crop growth monitoring in Poland, which was based on the NOAA/AVHRR satellite images, and which was programmed mainly in R.
In 2008 I was a trainee in the Joint Research Centre's Global Environment Monitoring Unit (GEM). I worked on concatenating of the existing burnt area products such as GBS and L3JRC to create an exhaustive database concerning past fires distribution. This project was also carried out mainly using R.
