András JUNG

In 2001 I obtained my horticultural engineering degree from the Szent István University in Budapest.  In 2004, I completed my second degree at the Budapest University of Technology and Economics (BME) in Geodesy and Geoinformatics. In 2006 I earned my PhD from Corvinus University of Budapest with summa cum laude in the field of hyperspectral remote sensing and plant examination methods. I had longer stays at the Humboldt University of Berlin (1999-2000), at the Agricultural University of Vienna (2004) and at the University of Halle (2004). 
Since 2006 I have been researching and teaching at universities in Germany (2006-2010, 2019-2020: Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg, 2012: University of Ulm, and University of Leipzig 2013-2015).
My research focuses on field spectroscopy and hyperspectral remote sensing, with special regard to scientific and industrial development of optical sensors. As a scholarship holder of the Ministry of Science, Research and Art in Baden-Württemberg, Germany in 2012, together with two German university colleagues, we established the first "spin-off" company at the ILM Institute of the Ulm University, which was the first in Europe to produce drone-mounted hyperspectral snap-shot mini-cameras. Since then, I have been continuously engaged in application development and remote sensing technologies.
In 2016 I returned to Szent István University as an associate professor. In the same year I earned the scientific qualification of habilitation. In 2016 I had been granted the Bolyai János Research Scholarship by the Hungarian Academy of Sciences for three years. 

In September 2020 I joined the Department of Cartography and Geoinformatics at ELTE, Budapest.
Subjects taught:

Main research field:
Development and application of high resolution remote sensing, hyperspectral imaging and field spectroscopy in soil and vegetation mapping.
