ISWAT Responsibilities: S2 Cluster co-moderator, S2-01 Team Lead, H1-01 Team Lead




Dr. Martin A. Reiss is a postdoctoral researcher at the Space Research Institute of the Austrian Academy of Sciences in Graz, Austria. He received his M.Sc. degree in theoretical and computational Physics from the University of Graz, Austria, where he worked on minimizing the computational requirements of algorithms in image classification. Dr. Reiss finished his doctoral study in natural sciences at the University of Graz in 2017. During his Ph.D., he was working in the field of solar physics, particularly on coronal holes, the detection thereof in EUV images of the Sun using machine learning algorithms, and their relation to high-speed solar wind streams measured at Earth. 

After receiving an Erwin-Schroedinger fellowship in 2017, Dr. Reiss joined the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, USA, where he worked on improving the coupling between magnetic models of the solar corona and heliospheric codes in space weather research. Afterwards, he joined the Space Research Institute, where his research currently focuses on solar wind modeling and prediction, and the application of interdisciplinary data science methods in combination with multi-spacecraft observations to advance the capabilities of coronal and solar wind models.
