Kenneth Olofsson
Associate Professor at the Department of Forest Resource Management, with main focus to develop and evaluate new image analysis and signal processing algorithms that extract forest information from remote sensing data.


I am an Associate Professor in remote sensing of forests. I have a MSc in mechanical engineering, a PhD in experimental mechanics and have a long experience in optical metrology and signal analysis for measuring different materials and natural resources. As a whole my research has covered different measurement challenges, such as extracting tree stem profiles from laser data and evaluating the quality of the fibers in pulp. The most recent years I have focused my work on remote sensing of forests. This has included research on estimating timber volume, wood quality, tree species and biomass; using digital aerial images, satellite images and data from airborne and ground based laser scanning.
