Further information

Research focus

The main aim of my research is an improved understanding of element and nutrient cycling in various terrestrial ecosystems including plant-soil systems, peatlands, sedimentary records, and loess-paleosol sequence. Specifically, environmental change impacts in past, recent and future ecosystems are of majore interest. In this line, I use numerous tools, but have specific expertise in application of molecular proxies from different compound classes (including, e.g., lipids, lignin, burning markers, plant pigments) and stable isotope techniques (monitoring and labeling) and modeling.
