My profile description

Keywords: spectro-polarimetry, aersol, calibration, dataprocessing

I am currently involved in the SPEX-airborne project where i am responsible for preparations and operations of the SPEX-airborne instrument on NASA’s high altitude research aircraft ER-2. I participate in field campaigns, and take part in the data processing of multi-angle polarimetric & radiometric data. I am also co-responsible for development of the Level 0-1B data processing algorithms: from raw data to calibrated radiance and polarization spectra.

Past activities:
- Development of an Inertial Sensor Sensor Check-Out Equipment (IS-SCOE) for LISA Pathfinder. Project manager & sensor modeling
- Development of an ASIC with ultra-high resolution AC/DC convertors for SEIS, a seismometer for Mars. Project manager.
- Gradiometer instrument modeling as part of end-to-end performance studies for ESA’s GOCE gravitation mission
