The speakers

Naomi Petrushevsky. She received her master’s degree in Geoinformatics engineering in 2020. Her thesis topic was combining optical and Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) data for urban classification. Currently, she is studying toward a Ph.D. in telecommunication engineering, where she is mainly focused on the design and signal processing of new SAR constellations with small satellites (CubeSats). In addition, she works as an application engineer in Aresys, a spin-off of Politecnico di Milano.

Mousa Sondoqah. Master’s Degree in Geoinformatics Engineering at Politecnico di Milano. Thesis topic: ‘The application of NAS and AutoML on Temporal Convolution Neural Networks-Deep learning for Privacy Preserving Computation and forecasting as a service’. He has a researcher position at EURAC, Bolzano/Sudtirol, working on: 

– Building machine learning and deep learning workflows to handle datastreams produced by photovoltaic systems

 -Designing Large-Language models tailored specifically for applications within the energy sector.

Alessandro Austoni. My thesis focused on detecting Bark Beetle infestations in Spruce and Pine trees, using Python, Google Earth Engine, and QGIS, contributing to the preservation of our precious ecosystem. During my studies, I was an Intern, Earth Observation Data Analyst in European Space Agency at Frascati. Now I’m working as GeoServices Techincal Assistant in Planetek Italia, Bari. My role is the development of innovative applications and services to support geospatial/remote sensing projects which require the elaboration of remote sensing data by using Earth Observation/GIS software or developing ad-hoc codes.
