My PhD focuses on oxidative ratios (OR) of various terrestrial ecosystems in Germany and different biomes across the globe, including Indonesia, to understand the effect of seasons, land-use change and many more environmental factors on OR.
Through the elemental analysis of the chemical elements carbon, nitrogen, hydrogen and oxygen of the organic matter, I calculate the oxidative ratio (see e. g. Worrall, et al. (2013). Biogeochemistry 115: 23-32 and Masiello, et al. (2008). Journal of Geophysical Research – Biogeosciences 113: G3, G03010), which is the amount of carbon dioxide sequestered in the terrestrial biosphere for each mol of oxygen produced and indicates the O2 production efficiency and thus can be a tool to determine the carbon sink ability of ecosystems.
The results will be connected to past, present and future flux measurements.

Research interests:

Climate Change, Biodiversity, Biochemical Cycles, Conservation Biology, Evolution, Ecology, Tropical Ecology, Palaeoecology, Stable Isotopes, Vertebrates.
