Jakub Nowosad

Dr. Jakub Nowosad is an assistant professor in the Institute of Geoecology and Geoinformation at the Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznan, Poland. His main research is focused on developing and applying data mining and pattern-based spatial methods to large datasets in order to broaden our understanding of processes and patterns in the environment. He has been involved in various interdisciplinary collaboration on topics of automatic global ecoregionalizations, extreme precipitation modeling, terrain classifications, phenology forecasting, and soil properties determination. During his Ph.D., he had worked on predicting pollen concentration of Corylus, Alnus, and Betula using machine learning and GIS. His research interests also include spatial analysis, statistics, and programming. He has an extensive teaching experience in the fields of spatial analysis, geostatistics, statistics, and machine learning. Jakub is an avid R user and an active member of the R community.
