Ulrich Leopold holds an M.Sc. in Physical Geography and Geo Sciences of the University of Trier, Germany, and conducted Ph.D. research at the Universities of Amsterdam and Wageningen, the Netherlands in “Spatial uncertainty analysis of integrated assessment models”. He is a Senior Research Associate in Geocomputation at the Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST) and has 15 years of experience in geospatial modelling, geostatistics and uncertainty analysis in national and international projects.
Ulrich leads an interdisciplinary group of scientists and engineers, developing geospatial models and decision support software to solve policy problems in the field of energy, noise, water, soil, air and their environmental consequences. He has been a work package leader in the European projects MUSIC and QUICS and is responsible for the development of the generic geospatial decision support system (iGUESS) framework to support urban areas and regions to find innovative solutions for emission reduction and energy planning, Flood Management, City Logistics.
Ulrich has published on geostatistical prediction of environmental variables, spatial uncertainty propagation analysis and downscaling, web based spatial decision support systems and technologies as well as urban energy modelling. He is a member of the Environmental Software and Modelling Society (iEMSs), the Pedometrics commission of the International Union of Soil Sciences, the International Spatial Accuracy Research and an expert in Task 51 of the International Energy Agency’s Solar Heating and Cooling Programme.
