Gabriele Cavallaro Appointed Adjunct Associate Professor at University of Iceland
Dr.-Ing. Gabriele Cavallaro joined JSC in 2016 as deputy head of the High Productivity Data Processing research group led by Prof. Dr.-Ing. Morris Riedel. In 2022, he became head of the AI and Machine Learning (ML) for Remote Sensing (RS) Simulation and Data Lab, which bases its work and research activities at the intersection of remote sensing applications and parallel machine learning methods that can scale on advanced computing technologies such as high-performance computing (HPC) and quantum computing. His lab collaborates closely with the Simulation and Data Lab RS of the Icelandic HPC community (University of Iceland) and other international institutions in joint activities that include community support, research projects, and the organization of special sessions and tutorials at international conferences. Gabriele is also the Chair of the High-Performance and Disruptive Computing in Remote Sensing (HDCRS) Working Group of the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society (GRSS), as well as a Visiting Professor at the Φ-Lab of the European Space Agency (ESA) in the context of the Quantum Computing for Earth Observation (QC4EO) initiative.
In June 2022, Gabriele was appointed Adjunct Associate Professor at the Faculty of Industrial Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Computer Science, School of Engineering and Natural Sciences, University of Iceland. He will retain his position at JSC according to the Jülich model. The joint position will strengthen the existing collaborations with the University of Iceland, including lecturing and supervising students at different academic levels in topics that address large-scale remote sensing applications with high-performance and advanced ML methods.
JSC wishes Gabriele all the best for his new position.
