Ramon Hanssen is Antoni van Leeuwenhoek professor in Geodesy and Satellite Earth Observation at the faculty of Civil Engineering and Geosciences, TUDelft. He studied aerospace engineering and geodetic engineering at Delft University of Technology (MSc. 1993). In 1994, he worked as a researcher on potential field data inversion at the International Institute for Aerospace Surveys and Earth Sciences (ITC). In 2001, he received his PhD degree on the geodetic analysis of repeat-pass spaceborne radar interferometry, with emphasis on error propagation.
