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.
- April 2022- on going; Postdoctoral scientist at Max-Planck Institute for Biogeochemistry, Jena, Germany; main responsibilities: Intersection of plant traits from TRY with weed species maps derived from drone images flying over target crop fields. Compiling a database of plant traits and abiotic proper es of weed species and analyzing them for their importance in interaction with crop species and pollinators. Preparing a web interface not only for scientist, but also for authorities and farmers to help making be er decision on managing the weed species.

- TV interviews with the regional press (MDR Thüringen) and national press (ZDF-nano); “Alte Wälder atmen besser; Die Stabilität eines Waldes zeigt sich an den Werten für die Aufnahme von CO2: Je älter der Wald ist, desto besser hält er Klimaschwankungen stand. Das fanden Forscher im Thüringer Nationalpark Hainich heraus.“
