Alex Röll studied Forest Sciences and Forest Ecology with a focus on tropical forests. For his PhD, he focused on the ecohydrological consequences of rainforest transformation to rubber and oil palm plantations in Indonesia. He continues to do so as a PostDoc, and is currently involved in developing and testing ways to assess water use characteristics based on drone-based photogrammetry and thermography. Alex Röll is involved in teaching courses related to forest ecology, agroforestry and silviculture at the Forest Faculty. He regularly referees for leading journals of the field (e.g. Tree Physiology, Agricultural and Forest Meteorology, Global Change Biology).
