Roman Bohovic is a leading expert in the field of Earth observation, specializing in Earth surface monitoring, vegetation dynamics and time series analysis. After a short academic career, he decided to devote himself to exploiting the possibilities of satellite monitoring in practice. He is looking for problems on Earth that can be solved using data from space. He is a co-founder of ASITIS and World from Space and was also the founder of the Brno Space Cluster. He is involved in the development of the Czech national satellite for Earth monitoring, or the mission to the moon.

Professional Information:

Roman graduated in computer science at the Brno University of Technology and then in applied geoinformatics and cartography at Masaryk University, where he completed all levels of studies up to his PhD. He has worked on evapotranspiration, ecosystem phenology and time series analysis of satellite observations. He gained research and academic experience at UNESCO/ZEF projects in Central Asia and Germany, then was a member of the Intersucho team at Mendel University and CzechGlobe., where he worked on the assessment of drought impacts on vegetation.

In the last decade, he has focused on the application of scientific knowledge for the development of operational tools in agriculture, environment, climate change and smart cities, always using Earth observation data. As a technical director and data expert, he leads teams working on several research projects for the European Space Agency (ESA) or TAČR. He is involved in machine learning experiments, but equally in the development of products suitable for operational use in the field.
