"Research for global sustainability can only be organised along and across traditional disciplinary boundaries. My role in THESys is about facilitating such research approaches to establish interdisciplinary thinking in science and education." Sebastian van der Linden

Dr. Sebastian van der Linden is a Senior Scientist at the Geography Department of Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin and was the first Managing Director of IRI THESys (2012-2017). He has studied Applied Environmental Sciences at Trier University and the University of Edinburgh. His doctoral research at the Geography Department of Humboldt-Universität focused on remote sensing of urban areas. Current research projects look at the development of remote sensing approaches for mapping gradual environmental changes, e.g. in urban areas or semi-natural landscapes.

As Managing Director of IRI THESys, Sebastian brought forward the foundation and implementation of the institute from November 2012 until October 2017. He was responsible for the coordination of scientific activities and conceptual development at IRI THESys and headed the institute's administration. From a scientific perspective Sebastian van der Linden brought in expertise on land remote sensing and the integration of Earth observation products into interdisciplinary projects.

Since 2015, Sebastian is Coordinator and Supervisor of the Deutschlandstipendium-Themenklasse "Sustainability & Global Justice", an annual interdisciplinary group of BA and MA students based at IRI THESys.
