Antje Barbara Metzler is studying for a PhD at Imperial College in the  Global Environmental Health Research Group and as part of the Pathways to Equitable Healthy Cities collaboration. Her research focuses on analysing urban development with high-resolution satellite imagery and machine learning in Sub-Saharan Africa.

Previously, Barbara completed an MSc in Health Data Analytics and Machine Learning at Imperial College, where she used Street View imagery and machine learning to measure social inequalities as part of her research project.

She holds a BASc degree with a major in Physics and Computational Methods from University College London. After her undergraduate studies, Barbara joined an indoor mapping software company, where her work focused on clustering walking trajectories.
