Research Interests:

  • Composition, distribution, and changing states of plants within and among ecosystems
  • Interaction between plants and their environment and how these interactions can make changes from local to Global scales.

Current Project:

I am working on the project "Better Weeds" in collaboration with the Julius Kühn Institut, TU Ilmenau University, ATB Potsdam and Speenlab in Germany. The aim of this project is an AI based autonomous detection and identification and evaluation of weed species occurring on agricultural land and the generation of geo-referenced distribution maps, which additionally consider site-specific characteristics of the areas. Based on these area maps, individual, site-specific management plans for weed management will be derived and experimentally validated. The main focus is on promoting increased weed diversity while controlling competitive weed species.
