Profile

Associate Professor Global EcoHydrology and Sustainability. 

My research theme is Global Eco-Hydrology and Sustainability. My goal is to understand the interactions and feedbacks between soil, vegetation, atmosphere and climate. The understanding of terrestrial processes plays a crucial role in addressing the major sustainability challenges of our time, including food security, desertification, degradation, transition to a bio-based economy, land-change and freshwater supply. Key contributions include the generation of new knowledge on these interactions, feedbacks and regime shifts between different environmental compartments and socio-economic drivers. I have developed my research on the interface between hydrology, ecology, soil science and socio-economy, key issues within Sustainability Science. In my vision the most important questions on the environmental agenda emerge at these interfaces and therefore calls for a multi-disciplinary research agenda. To increase the carrying capacity of the land for a large diversity in ecosystem services we need new innovative solutions that take into account all interactions and feedbacks on the interface in the natural and social system.
