Alexander Röll


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 using ground-based measurements. As a PostDoc, he focuses on ground-validated remote sensing applications from drones and satellites to study ecosystem structures, dynamics and key exchange processes such as evapotranspiration across spatial scales, from single trees to regions. His current research interests include enhanced landscape (water) stress monitoring and the design, optimisation and implementation of sustainable multi-purpose landscapes. Alex Röll teaches courses related to forest ecology, agroforestry and silviculture at the Forest Faculty.
