In general, my aim is to involve myself in innovative, collaborative and inter-disciplinary research in environmental sciences and applied ecology, enabling evidence-based decision-making. My research foci lie in boreal ecohydrology (wetland-forest interactions), (urban) tree-growth dynamics and plant ecophysiology. I continuously dedicate myself to the generation of data, (software) tools and rigorous analyses in a transparent, accessible and reproducible manner.
In my current position, I am assessing tree growth dynamics and long-term ecophysiological adaptations in urban(izing) settings across Berlin and the wider North-East of Germany. This work is done in collaboration with the UFZ Leipzig under the umbrella of HI-CAM (Helmholtz Initiative for Climate Adaptation and Mitigation) in the Project Cluster Urban Systems.
