About me


My life at a glance...

I was born in Porrentruy, Jura, Switzerland, and spent the first 20 to 25 years of my life around that place doing all sorts of stuff.

Then in 1999, after finishing my undergraduate studies at the ETHZ in Zurich, I challenged myself to go and study overseas for a while. That turned out to work pretty well as I spent about 5 years at the ANU in Canberra, followed by a 3 year postdoc with the WA Telecommunications Research Institute (WATRI) in Perth, Australia, and I am now holding a permanent position of Research Scientist with CSIRO in Canberra, ACT. On March 23, 2009, I also officially became a citizen of Australia.

The best way to describe myself is probably as someone who enjoys cooking, playing pool (billiards), swimming, horse riding, and playing guitar and didgeridoo, among lots of other things. One way or another, I also grew up to become a fanatical addict of LaTeX, Linux, and the Calvin & Hobbes comic strips. However, all this good stuff flew out of the window following the birth of my two overly hyper-active boys in the early 2010s—I now spend 100% of my free time baby sitting...


Short bio


If you prefer something more formal...

Eric Lehmann graduated in 1999 from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich (ETHZ), Switzerland, with a Diploma in Electrical Engineering (Master equivalent). He received the M.Phil. and Ph.D. degrees, both in Electrical Engineering, from the Australian National University (Canberra) in 2000 and 2004 respectively.
Between 2004 and 2008, he held various research positions with National ICT Australia (NICTA) in Canberra, ACT, as well as the Western Australian Telecommunications Research Institute (WATRI) in Perth, WA. He is now working as a Research Scientist for the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) in Canberra, within the Data61 business unit (Remote Sensing and Image Integration team).
His current scientific interests include various aspects of signal and image processing, statistical modelling methods for spatio-temporal data fusion / integration, and processing of remote sensing data (including in-situ sensors) for environmental mapping and monitoring applications.
