Short CV:

From 2004 to 2010 I studied Geosciences with a diploma degree at Leibniz Universität Hannover, Germany, specializing in 3D subsurface modelling, geodata-management and the interplay of tectonics and sedimentology.
The topic of my diploma thesis (2010) was stratigraphic 3D modelling of a subglacial tunnel valley at Schöningen.

Tasks in the AIDA project:

Since November 2010, I am a PhD student at Leibniz Universtät Hannover, Germany in collaboration with the AIDA-project. For my PhD thesis I focus on improving depth inversions with airborne geophysical datasets to generate 3D subsurface models in AIDA-sub-project 5. These datasets will be compared and validated in geoscientific models with seismic, borehole data and gravimetric data.

Short CV:

From 2003 to 2010 Peter Menzel studied „geoscience informatics“ with diploma certificate (ger.: „Diplom-Geoinformatik“) at the Technische Universität Bergakademie Freiberg.
During his studies he specialized in geomodelling, geodata-management, 3D-visualisation, virtual reality and numeric simulation.
In his diploma-thesis (2010) he developed methodes for immersive visualisation, interaction and analysis for geoscientific modells.

Tasks in the AIDA project:

Since december 2010 he works at Christian-Albrechts-University to Kiel/Germany as PhD-student in subproject 5 of the AIDA-project.
His tasks in AIDA are tool-developement for data-exchange, validation of geoscientific models and 3D-visualisation. He also administrates and moderates the AIDA-project-wiki-site.
During his PhD-Thesis he deals with the validation, comparison and visualisation of geoscientific models from very different modelling-sources but with a common geoscientific background.
