Dr Lauren Biermann
Role in NEODAAS
Lauren has degrees in Ichthyology, Molecular Biology, and Marine Biology, but discovered marine remote sensing during her PhD and hasn’t looked back. After working for the UK government as a senior earth observation scientist for a few years, she joined the Plymouth Marine Laboratory team. Her research interests are now focused around detecting floating debris including plastics from Sentinel-2, and using Sentinel-1 SAR for vessel detection. Recently, Lauren has joined the EUMETSAT project, where she is helping to train a new generation of scientists to use data collected by the Sentinel-3 sensors.
