Research profile

My field of research is to quantify climate change impacts on crop yield by developing crop models and applying the models at the regional scale. Currently I am involved in the MACSUR project focusing on scaling effects on simulated crop yields such as the effect of climate data aggregation. I am also interested in modeling other impacts on crop yields such as diseases or nutrient supply. In addition, I am also interested in GIS based modeling to analyze multiple land use systems and management practices to reduce non-point water pollution and to improve ecosystem services at watershed level.

Current projects

Modelling European Agriculture with Climate Change for Food Security (MACSUR)
