Research interest

I am interested in different disturbance regimes, forest ecology and its natural regeneration in general. During my Diploma thesis I did research on gap-creating forces in human-influenced sweet chestnut coppices. The topic of my PhD was “Modeling gap dynamics, succession, and disturbance regimes of mangrove forests”. Within this project I studied the influence of natural and human-induced disturbances on the vitality and the maintenance of mangrove forests. The tools of choice for approaching the subject were remote sensing and computer simulations combined with on-site field work and validation. The integration of these methods now allows us to give management advice on long-term mangrove protection and restoration. Further, as a postdoc I was involved in the development of a software tool for the selection of suitable tree species for urban areas and the classification of urban tree location types. Due to the relatively hostile living conditions for trees within cities special background knowledge is needed to integrate woody plants successfully in urban areas. Toward this end, we produced an urban tree database including the main categories: site characteristics and natural distribution, tree appearance, ecosystem services, required management activities as well as risk and interferences. Furthermore I worked in a project about the success of natural regeneration in retention-tree stands of Pinus silvestris performing spatial analyses of the regenerating plants, model approaches for analyzing the natural regeneration according to seed trees and testing different inventory designs to find appropriate solutions to estimate the regeneration success.
