Ökopedologie der Tropen und Subtropen

Research interests

My research focuses on ecosystem carbon dynamics in the humid tropics. In my previous and current research activities, I investigate how climate change and land-use changes affect belowground carbon stocks and trace gas emissions from soils. My current research is included in the REDD ALERT project. More information of the REDD ALERT project can be found here.
