Greenhouse Gas Emissions in Rice dominated Landscapes

PhD student at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT).

In cooperation with the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI), Philippines, my current investigations comprise the assessment of greenhouse gas fluxes of CH4 and N2O as well as soil CO2 emissions from tropical rice and maize crop rotations under different residue management practices.

Holding a M.Sc. Agricultural & Environmental Science, I have a broad background within plant and soil science, water and matter cycling in agro-ecosystems as well as analysis of environmental impacts at the scales from organisms to landscapes. My research is focusing on mitigation options that are adaptive to climate change and associated with a sustainable intensification of agriculture.
