Research Interests

  • Modeling biogeochemical cycles of terrestrial ecosystems under changing environmental conditions, including land use change
  • Changes and trade-offs in Ecosystem Services. How can global models help us in providing ES-related information that supports decision making towards a sustainable land management?
