Field of work
Sebastian Semella has been working as a GIS specialist at the DBFZ in the Resource Mobilisation working group since the end of 2021. He previously worked for several years as a research assistant at the Institute of Geography at the University of Leipzig, where he conducted research on application potentials of infrared spectroscopy in soil science. At the DBFZ, he is primarily involved with analyses of the spatial distribution of biogenic resources and with automatisations of data evaluations using geographical information systems and R.
