Hannes Gaisberger

I'm a Biologist by training with a PhD in applied geoinformatics. I worked in the GIS-Unit at WFP, generating emergency operation maps and managing a global spatial infrastructure database. In 2009 I started working at Bioversity International, with a focus on developing the Collecting Mission database and a spatially explicit vulnerability mapping approach for tree species in Burkina Faso. This also became the topic of my PhD study.
Since 2020, I have been working as Associate Scientist in the Tree Genetic Resources team of the Alliance engaged in developing and implementing spatially explicit analysis methods (such as species distribution modeling, threat vulnerability mapping as well as ecogeographic and genetic diversity analysis) to support decision making on tree genetic resources conservation and restoration.
