I am a PhD researcher at the MPI-BGC Systems conducting a PhD project within the VERIFY project (funded by the European Commission, H2020). The goal is to quantify CO2 flux budgets over Europe at continental and national scales based on independent verification using Top-down method for penultimate years (i.e. current - 1)
