Assistant Professor (Akademische Rätin)

My research focuses on understanding greenhouse gas (GHG) and water fluxes from agricultural systems, mainly using eddy covariance and chambers techniques. I aim at quantifying these fluxes and evaluating how they are affected by management practices and land-use change. Additionally, I am interested in assessing the effects of land-use change on microclimatic conditions.
