Research Interests

  • Compound specific stable isotope analysis (2H, 13C) for tracing metobolic fluxes
  • Interaction between plant/microbial metabolic functions and biogeochemical cycles
  • Effects of land management and plant functional diversity on carbon allocation in terrestial ecosystems
  • Resistance and resilience of grasslands to climate change (e.g. to more frequent drought periods)
