Current Projects

NamTip – Understanding and Managing Desertification Tipping Points in Dryland Social-Ecological Systems – A Namibian Perspective
https://www.namtip.uni-bonn.de/

I am currently doing my PhD in the BMBF funded transdisciplinary project NamTip, that strives to understand ecological processes, societal and management related aspects around desertification tipping points (DTP) at Namibia's semi-arid savannah rangelands.
My work in that project takes place in Namibia and focusses on experimental investigation of functional plant trait patterns and forage provision of a semi-arid savannah rangeland close to a DTP, including their reaction to severe drought and heavy grazing.

 

SEBAS – SEnsing Biodiversity Across Scales (SEBAS). Land-use effects on the biodiversity-ecosystem functioning (BEF) and the biodiversity-ecosystem service (BES) relationship in central European grasslands www.geographie.uni-bonn.de/Pressemitteilungen/sensing-biodiversity-across-scales-sebas

I work on hyperspectral canopy sensing of grassland traits, such as biomass, forage quality, plant functional types and plant functional traits
