Celia Baumhoer

Celia Baumhoer is a scientist at DLR's Earth Observation Center (EOC) and a member of the Cold and Polar Regions Team. Fascinated by snow and ice, she uses satellite data and artificial intelligence to research what alters glaciers and what role climate change plays in this process.

Baumhoer completed a Bachelor of Science in physical geography at Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg. She came into contact with DLR for the first time in 2016, when she completed an internship during her master’s degree at the University of Bonn. Thrilled by the possibilities of Earth observation, she began her doctorate at DLR in 2017, which she brought to a successful conclusion in 2021. Since 2020, she has been a research associate in the Land Surface Dynamics Department, where she conducts research on glacier front dynamics in Antarctica as part of the Polar Monitor and AI-CORE (Artificial Intelligence for Cold Regions) projects.

Measuring over 22 kilometres in length and with a thickness of up to 900 metres, it is the largest glacier in the Alps, accounting for one fifth of Switzerland's total ice mass. But climate change is obviously leaving its mark on the Aletsch Glacier as well. read more
