Uncovering the Mechanisms of Migratory Bird Navigation with Big Data Analytics.

Lead by Dr Urška Demšar, I supported the developing of MagGeo a novel data fusion method to link remote sensing data from the European Space Agency-ESA mission (Swarm) with animal movement trajectories. This exciting and multidisciplinary project attempts to combine Ecology with GISience methods to study how birds in particular long distance migrants use Earth’s magnetic field for navigation.
