Prof. Dr. Gustau Camps-Valls
ELLIS unit Jena, Associated member
Director of the ELLIS fellow program „Machine Learning for Earth and Climate Science“
Professor in Electrical Engineering at the Universitat de València
Group Leader of the Image and Signal Processing (ISP) group
Gustau earned a Ph.D. degree in Physics (2002, summa cum laude) from the Universitat de València, and he is currently Full Professor in Electrical Engineering in the same niversity, where he lectures time series analysis, signal processing, image processing, AI and machine learning, and advanced remote sensing data processing.
He is the Group Leader of the Image and Signal Processing (ISP) group an interdisciplinary group of 40 researchers working in the intersection of AI and machine learning for Earth and Climate sciences. He currently coordinates several European projects in these areas, and has assisted the aerospace industry (ESA, EUMETSAT, NASA) as consultant and member of Advisory Boards.
Gustau has been Visiting Researcher at the Remote Sensing Laboratory (Univ. Trento, Italy) in 2002, the Max Planck Institute (Tübingen, Germany) in 2009 and 2016, and as Invited Professor at the EPFL (Lausanne, Switzerland) in 2013, and at Max Planck Institute for Biogeochemistry (Jena, Germany) in 2018.
His research activities have resulted so far in a total of 250 peer-reviewed international journal papers, 300+ international conference papers, 25 book chapters, and in editing 5 books on remote sensing, image processing and machine learning.
Gustau has a h-index of 72 in Google Scholar, with more than 23.000 citations, from which 14000+ were received in the last 5 years. He was listed as a highly cited researcher in 2011 and has published seminal papers in Nature, Nature Communications, Science Advances, and PNAS. He is (or has been) Associate Editor of the “IEEE Transactions on Signal Processing”, “IEEE Signal Processing Letters”, “IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Letters”, and Guest Editor of “IEEE Journal of Selected Topics in Signal Processing”. He was member of the MTGIRS Science Team (MIST) of the European Organisation for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites (EUMETSAT), and since 2019 he is an Invited Professor Fellow and Consultant of the ESA PhiLab, Gustau is habitual evaluator of project proposals for H2020 programs (ERC, FET), NSF, China Science Foundation, Swiss Science Fundation, etc. Gustau was included in the prestigious IEEE Distinguished Lecturer program of the GRSS in 2017, and elevated to IEEE Fellow member in 2018 in two Societies (Geosciences and Signal Processing). He is the only Spanish researcher receiving two European Research Council (ERC) grants in the area of Computer Science: an ERC Consolidator grant (2015) and an ERC Synergy grant (2019) to advance AI for the Earth and Climate Sciences. He is ELLIS fellow since 2019 and co-directs the ELLIS program Machine Learning for Earth and Climate Sciences.
