Dr. Kathrin Fuchs

Research Interests

I am a geo-ecologist focusing on N cycling, particularly on soil nitrous oxide (N2O) fluxes in temperate grasslands and croplands. My work combines field experiments with process-based modeling, addressing particularly on the following topics:

  • Process-based modeling of carbon and nitrogen cycling in terrestrial ecosystems
  • Understanding the environmental drivers and microbial processes leading to greenhouse gas emissions
  • Measuring CO2, N2O and CH4 fluxes using the Eddy Covariance technique
  • Sustainable agricultural practices to mitigate N losses to the atmosphere and waters while maintaining productivity
