First tenured Associate Prof at the IFFB Geoinformatics-Z_GIS

Hermann Klug was promoted to Associate Professor with tenure recently. He is the first professor of this kind at the Interfaculty Department of Geoinformatics - Z_GIS. His habilitation on 'Automated Geosynthesis', finished in September 2015, is a comprehensive and multi-functional approach to environmental monitoring using tailor-made information delivery to stakeholders, local farmers and the general public.

Educated as a geographer and landscape ecologist at the University of Hannover, Hermann started his career at Z_GIS in 2001. First employed in the SPIN project (Spatial Indicators for European Nature Conservation) funded in the 5th EU Framework Programme, he finished his PhD in the domains Landscape Ecology and Geoinformatics in 2006. Hermann managed to set up the Z_GIS Landscape Lab, which is closely linked to the SMART aquifer project funded by the New Zealand Government. After his sabbatical in Auckland and Taupo (New Zealand) in 2013 he returned on an assistant professorship in 2014 and now successfully completed this key academic career step.
