Agnes Schneider completed her first degree in Prehistory and Roman Archaeology at the Eötvös Loránd Tudományegyetem in Budapest, Hungary, in 2010. After working at various archaeological excavations in Germany between 2011 and 2017 she decided to pursue her interest in Remote Sensing and Computational Archaeology at the Philipps-University Marburg in the Department of Geography by obtaining an MSc. Degree in Physical Geography.
Throughout her studies, she has worked at various archaeological excavations throughout Europe, including Hungary, Germany, France, Italy, and Spain. Further, she worked with different German Geophysical Prospection companies in Germany, Luxemburg, and Croatia, mainly in the role of field operator of magnetometer surveys.
Since April 2021 Agnes is working as a research associate at the Technical University Berlin in the collaborative DFG project “The Late Antique and Early Islamic Hira - Urbanistic Transformation Processes of a Transregional Contact Zone”. In this context, she recently started her Ph.D. at Leiden University in the Digital Archaeology Group to develop an automated analysis method for magnetometer data.

Her research focus is on Archaeological Remote Sensing methods: she is highly motivated to learn new methods to collect, process, and analyze remote sensing data for archaeological purposes. Her ars poetica is to understand landscapes and archaeological sites through reproducible and replicable statistical and spatial analysis of remote sensing and archaeological data.
