Curriculum Vitae

Christian Riedel graduated in Geoinformation at Beuth University of Applied Sciences in Berlin. After spending research stays in Ethiopia, the Dem. Rep. Congo, and Namibia, Christian worked as a researcher at Freie Universität Berlin. He investigated the evolution of planetary surfaces in the framework of the CRC TRR 170 in the working group "Planetary Sciences and Remote Sensing." His research interests include applications for collecting, analyzing, and visualizing spatial data, the geologic evolution of planetary surfaces, and the sustainable provision of research data. Since April 2021, he has been working as a researcher at the Chair for Complex Multimedia Application Architectures in Research Data Management for the CRC 1294.
