2022 EAGLE Student
Max is from a village in Baden-Württemberg, near Ulm and Heidenheim. For his bachelor’s he studied Geography in Würzburg, with a focus on remote sensing and physical geography. Remote sensing had been his main interest from the first term and of the courses that related to the subject he chose as many as possible.
During his two years of tutoring for the introductory remote sensing lectures in the bachelor, he had the opportunity to teach younger bachelor’s generations the theoretical basis of remote sensing, all the while consolidating and deepening his own understanding of the topic. His internship at the BUND, an organisation for nature conservation, sparked his interest in ecology, flora and fauna. This is also where he saw much potential for the implementation of remote sensing technologies, be it with satellites or drones, and why he ultimately decided to join the EAGLE M. Sc. Program.
In his free time he is an avid nature photographer, mountainbiker, he loves hiking and the country of Greece. His favourite animals are dragonflies and butterflies, and his favourite plants are the dark columbine and the bird’s-nest orchid.
