Expertise: Geo-information & Earth observation

In Dutch

Better data supports better decision-making on development issues and this is where Caroline Gevaert’s research comes in. Earth observation and artificial intelligence give us a better understanding of how the Earth's surface is changing.

For example, algorithms that map the growth of slums can help to improve conditions there. In her current research, Gevaert focuses on the use of drones and earth observation in developing countries, examining both the technical and the ethical issues associated with the responsible use of these technologies. She also works part time as a consultant for the World Bank. As a member of The Young Academy, she will promote collaboration with researchers in developing countries, inclusion, and alternative career paths for young researchers.
