2019 EAGLE student | Member of the Students' Board
Larissa Gorzawski was born in Munich, where she first finished a degree in Graphic Design before studying a Bachelor in Geoinformatics. She discovered remote sensing in her fourth semester and has been fascinated by the different applications of earth observation ever since. During her bachelor’s she also spent an ERASMUS semester in Gävle, Sweden, where she studied remote sensing and python in an international environment.
During her internship semester and bachelor thesis at the DLR in Oberpfaffenhofen she worked in the field of animal movement, gaining experience with R and investigating the land use of white storks during their migration.
In the EAGLE program, Larissa looks forward to further improve her programming skills and try out as many applications of remote sensing as possible. She is still interested in animal movement and conservations studies and would love to gain deeper insight in natural hazards and risk assessment.
She spends her free time happily with movies, games, calligraphy and making music – and she’s always up to go and explore new places.
