Dr. Valentin (Tino) Heimhuber is a postdoctoral researcher within the EcoEng group at the UNSW Water Research Laboratory.
Tino is an expert in satellite and drone remote sensing and typically uses large satellite datasets and geospatial analysis for solving complex water, climate and biodiversity problems (e.g., https://github.com/VHeimhuber/InletTracker). In recent years, his research has focused on the restoration of coastal blue carbon ecosystems via tidal introduction. He has undertaken several feasibility and cost-benefit assessments for blue carbon wetland restoration projects and has developed a best-practice guideline for planning and undertaking such projects.
Tino is also an expert on climate change, global sustainability and carbon markets and frequently speaks to large audiences on these topics as part of his science-comm initiative Turnthataround.
