Research Interests:

My research interest is in biosphere-atmosphere interactions (greenhouse gases and fog) and the identification of relevant processes as well as their driving factors. Further interests are water and carbon dynamics from small scales to landscape scales. I analyze time-series and spectral properties of eddy covariance data and combine those with various ancillary measurements and remote sensing data.
