Research interests

I am interested in the experimental exploration of global change effects on interactions in plant-invertebrate-microbe systems from an above-belowground perspective, rhizosphere interactions and biotic soil processes. The main focus is on agro-ecosystems.
Head of the working group Global Change Experimental Research.

Current Projects

The Global Change Experimental Facility (GCEF) in Halle

Experimental approaches to investigate the impact of climate change (rain, temperature) on ecosystem functions, ecological communities and species interactions under different types of land use.
