My name is Jie Zhao. I received my Ph.D. degree in remote sensing between Technische Universität Wien, Vienna, Austria and Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology, Esch-Sur-Alzette, Luxembourg. Currently, I am a Postdoc focusing on large-scale flood mapping using earth observation data at the department of Data Science in Earth observation, Technical University of Munich. My research interests broadly lie in flood mapping, deep learning, and SAR image analysis. During my Ph.D. studies, I worked on several projects with various partners. With such an academic background, I’d like to contribute to community development in ML4Earth.
