Research interest:

  • Dynamics of forests including disturbances (temperate and tropical forests, logging, fragmentation, drought..., forest models FORMIND and FORMIX3)
  • Individual based modelling of complex ecosystems, modelling of biodiversity
  • Carbon balances of vegetation
  • Remote sensing, linking remote sensing and ecological modelling
  • Physiological processes in vegetation ecosystems (process based models)
  • Ecological impacts of bioenergy production, species-rich bioenergy systems
  • "How to model it?": strategies of modelling in biology, inverse modelling, sensitivity analysis
  • Self-organization in biological systems (e.g. fish schools)
