Wouter Gheyle

Wouter Gheyle (°1980) is a scientific researcher at Ghent University. His main interest is in landscape archaeology and the use of remote sensing in archaeology. His PhD combined these for an interdisciplinary survey and analysis of archaeological sites in the Russian and Kazakh part of the Altay Mountains. His research also focusses on historical aerial photography and the archaeology of modern conflicts, primarily WWI and WWII. Especially the combination of non-invasive techniques, such as the analysis of Lidar-data and geophysical prospection next to aerial photography, is a powerful way of documenting the heritage. With the idea that public outreach is an essential part of scientific research, he enjoys contributing to exhibitions, publications and communications for a wide audience.
