Enayat Hosseini Aria
Remote sensing

I am a PhD in remote sensing, graduated (2018) from the Department of Geoscience and Remote sensing, Delft University of Technology, the Netherlands; with an interest in exploring remote sensing data; mathematical models and machine learning algorithms; and developing methods for a deeper understanding of our environment. During my PhD, I have developed and implemented a methodology to extract optimal information from hyperspectral images while reducing the dimensionality of the data; leading to higher accuracy in land cover classification. Later, the proposed algorithm was embedded in an onboard processing chain of an ESA hyperspectral satellite, called HyperScout, which successfully operated in the orbit. I have also collaborated in different projects such as analysing a time series of the high resolution of optical images for crop water requirement in the north of Africa, and the development of a data fusion algorithm using MODIS, Landsat-8, and Sentinel-2 to generate TIR images for soil moisture retrieval.


Since Nov. 2020, I joined the Department of Biodiversity, Ecole d’Ingénieurs de PURPAN, Toulouse, as a postdoctoral researcher focusing on the development of operational services for monitoring vines status by exploring the potential of multi/high spectral imagery (drone, airborne and satellite images) and deep learning algorithms.
