My focus is on intercropping research, where I investigate the vertical root distribution of different legume-non legume species in pure stands and mixtures of different land use systems (winter faba bean-winter wheat, white clover-perennial ryegrass-chicory and poplar-robinia mixtures). I am also interested in eco physiological and biodiversity related research topics.
