Motivation

I am fascinated by topics concerning biodiversity and species composition, as well as biogeochemistry and primary production of tropical rainforests. Therefore, I developed a strong interest in the functioning of tropical ecosystems regarding their impact on global carbon and water cycles.


 

Projects

I have conducted tropical field campaigns and coordinated the set-up of long-term forest sites in tropical forest ecosystems situated in southwestern Costa Rica as well as in the central-eastern Amazon. I have been lecturing tropical field courses as research associate of the tropical field station La Gamba and the Instituto Nacional de Pesquisas da Amazônia (INPA).
