Introduction

Isaac Kyere is a research assistant and Ph.D. student at the University of Kassel’s Grassland Science and Renewable Plant Resources section, since 2017. He did his BSc. and MSc. in Ghana and Germany, respectively, specializing in GIS and remote sensing. The use of satellite optical remote sensing and machine learning based model development to understand our natural environment are his research interest. He is involved in a BMBF (Federal Ministry of Education and Research) sponsored project that seeks to monitor and model the bio-economy of Germany. His role in the project is to understand the impact of biogas production, which is an aspect of bio-economy, on croplands using satellite-based remote sensing.
