Personal profile

Personal profile

Agnieszka Soszynska studied Geography for bachelors (bachelor degree 2014), and Geoinformatics, Cartography and Remote Sensing for masters (master degree 2016), both at the University of Warsaw.

After completing her studies, Agnieszka started working as a researcher at the Humboldt-Innovation GmbH in Berlin in a joint project with the German Aerospace Center (DLR), within the FireBIRD satellite mission.

In 2021 Agnieszka finished her doctorate thesis to obtain dr. rer. nat. degree from Humboldt-University in Berlin, with a thesis on parametrization of gas flaring using infrared satellite imagery. During her doctoral research, she was an employee of the DLR, working further for the FireBIRD mission.

Since 2021 Agnieszka works as a postdoctoral researcher at the ITC, within the GeoHot project, which focuses on the geothermal sources analysis and detection using thermal infrared imagery from ECOSTRESS sensor.

Agnieszka’s research focus lays in infrared remote sensing, high-temperature-events characterization and hot-spot recognition. Having worked within a satellite mission allowed Agnieszka to gain deeper insight and understanding of the design and characteristics of an infrared satellite sensor.

Research interests:
