Dr Anna E. Hogg is a Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) Knowledge Exchange Research Fellow, formally affiliated with the UK Satellite Applications Catapult. During the Sea Level Rise from Space project, satellite Earth Observation data will be used to measure sea level variability, in order to generate a bespoke sea level rise service that aids UK coastline management. Dr Hogg is based in the Centre for Polar Observation and modelling (CPOM) at the University of Leeds.
Dr Hogg’s primary field of expertise is Earth observation of the Polar regions, where she has gained expertise in a wide range of Earth observation data sources and processing methods including the quantitative techniques of satellite radar altimetry and satellite radar interferometry. Dr Hogg has broad experience of collaborative research, having managed or led over 10 international projects funded by ESA, and through her role as a member of the NERC Centre for Polar Observation and Modelling which has involved liaising with the NERC Ice Sheet Stability Research Program and the NERC Ocean Regulation of Climate by Heat and Carbon Sequestration and Transport program. Dr Hogg is deeply connected to the international Earth observation community, and through her role on the UK Space Agencies (UKSA) Earth Observation Advisory Committee (EOAC), she enjoys working with academics and space industry experts to plan a roadmap that will achieve scientific and industrial strategic goals that shape the future direction of our national Earth observation capability.
Dr Hogg is passionate about the translation of fundamental environmental science to generate socio-economic benefits by exploring non-commercial applications for Earth Observation datasets; such as by developing the worlds first Near Real Time ice velocity monitoring service, and supervising the development of the worlds first sea ice thickness mobile phone application.
