Berufliches Profil

(note: this site is under construction)

From 1994 to 2000 Markus Gerke studied Geodetic Sciences at the Leibniz University of Hannover, and right afterwards he started to work as scientific collaborateur at the Institute of Photogrammetry and GeoInformation (IPI) at the same University. He finished his PhD in June 2006, the topic is quality assessment of road databases using remote sensing imagery. In April 2007 he has joined the EOS department as an assistant professor for image sequence analysis. His focus was on the capture of geometric and semantic information from images and image sequences.

Since January 2017 he is full professor at the Institute of Geodesy and Photogrammetry, Technical University of Braunschweig. His group works in the fields of  surveying engineering, radar remote sensing and photogrammetry.

In 2006 he received the award of the Victor-Rizkallah-Foundation, Leibniz University Hannover. In 2007 he received the Carl-Pulfrich-Award together with Dr. Sönke Müller (Leibniz University of Hannover), and Dr. Andreas Busch (Federal Agency for Cartography and Geodesy, BKG, Frankfurt) for the work on image-based verification and update of geospatial data.
