  • Analysis of geodetic networks (network adjustment, outlier tests, deformation analysis)
  • Mathematical Geodesy (textbook for land surveying)
  • Physical Geodesy (gravity field determination, geodetic boundary value problem)
  • Satellite Geodesy (positioning with GPS, satellite gradiometry)
  • Approx. 80 scientific publications in journals, series and anthologies, as well as a textbook
  • Approx. 100 scientific presentations for various symposiums and seminars
  • Supervision of 12 doctoral and 2 postdoctoral theses
