Personal profile

Personal profile

Monika Kuffer received her PhD from the University of Twente (NL) and one MSc in Human Geographer (TU Munich) and a second MSc in Geographic Information Science (University of London). She is working as Assistant Professor at the Faculty of Geo-Information Science and Earth Observation (ITC, University of Twente). Her main research foci are urban remotes sensing, monitoring deprived areas (e.g., slums) and analyzing urban form and dynamics with remote sensing, spatial statistics and spatial metrics. Her research is driven by providing spatial information to support planning and decision-making processes in complex cities, towards inclusive, livable and sustainable cities.
