I am currently doing my PhD within the DFG funded collaborative research centre Future Rural Africa, project A01: Future Carbon Storage. Within that interdisciplinary project, my work in Namibia is focused on vegetation surveys which aim to determine synergies and trade-offs along the conservation and intensification pathways of rural future-making, carbon storage in trees, and effects of trophic rewilding on plant communities. I will be conducting further research in this project’s second phase focusing on Zambia. I am also involved in our working group's activities at Global Change Experimental Facility (GCEF).
