Ovidiu Csillik is a postdoctoral research associate in the Asner Lab at Arizona State University’s Center for Global Discovery and Conservation Science. He completed a bachelor’s degree in Geography (2011) with a focus on permafrost processes and forms, and a master’s degree in Geoinformatics focusing on remote sensing (2013), both from West University of Timisoara, Romania. He earned his doctoral degree in 2018 from the University of Salzburg, Austria, researching spatiotemporal object-based image analysis for land-use/land cover mapping. He was a visiting scholar at UC Berkeley in 2017, at the Department of Environmental Science, Policy and Management. His areas of expertise are related to the analysis and interpretation of remote sensing data, object-based image analysis, image segmentation/classification, machine learning, computer vision, and geomorphometry. As a postdoc in the Asner Lab, Ovidiu is doing spatial modeling of very high-resolution remote sensing data to map tropical forest carbon stocks and emissions in support of science and conservation efforts.
