Function and Responsibilities:

  • Processing of Airborne Eddy Covariance data
  • Member of the Earth-Atmosphere Interactions TEAM

Research Interests:

At the moment, I am using airborne eddy covariance data to understand the environmental drivers for the exchange of carbon, methane and water vapour between the surface and the atmosphere. In my PhD, I modelled and measured changes in hydrological fluxes after partial deforestation using a heavily monitored catchment in the Eiffel region in Germany. This work included the analysis of a large soil moisture network dataset (SoilNet Wüstebach) and the comparison of latent heat fluxes for two eddy covariance stations (forested vs. deforested).
