My name is Martin Brandt and I’m a physical geographer using satellite data to monitor vegetation dynamics related to climate change and human management. My regional focus is in the Sahel of Western Africa, especially Mali and Senegal, where I’ve spent a lot of time doing field work, but I’m more and more involved in global studies. Recently I’ve been also working in southern China. Beside producing interesting maps in the office, I’m especially interested in explaining remote sensing results locally on the ground, which includes vegetation surveys, but also “socializing pixels” by intensive work with humans living and acting within the pixel.

Since 2015 I’m at the University of Copenhagen, currently as assistant Professor. I’m also section editor for the journal Land Degradation and Development.

  1. Hi Martin
    great to get to know this website. I do research on the Senegal River, as water resources management researcher. It would be great to get to know each other…
