We conduct research within the field of geography which range from urban planning, labour market relations, value chains, poverty and migration in developing countries within human geography – to coastal protection, soil mapping and climate analyses within physical geography, thus spanning both the social and natural sciences.
Furthermore, we have environmental geographers who are engaged in natural resource management, land system science and landscape analyses from both natural and a social scientific perspectives, and in geoinformatics, we use IT tools to process and analyse large volumes of spatial data and to find ways of using satellite images to understand, e.g. environmental change and food shortages.
