Official position at address above: Postdoc Research Fellow
Educational Institutions attended: M.S., 2004, University of Natural Resources and Applied Life Sciences (BOKU) Vienna, Austria Ph.D., 2007, University of Natural Resources and Applied Life Sciences (BOKU) Vienna, Austria
Principal Collaborators: Tom Spies
General Interests: I'm interested in forest ecosystem dynamics in general and the role of climate and disturbances in forest ecosystems in particular. My work aims at harnessing concepts of ecosystem dynamics – primarily in the form of simulation models – for the support of sustainable forest management under climate change.
Current Research Projects/Activities: A framework for individual-based forest landscape modeling under changing climate and disturbance regimes (http://iland.boku.ac.at)
