I specialize in institutional and political economy. I investigate coordination mechanisms for provision of public and common goods such as biodiversity and water. Currently I am working in the Project on Sustainable Water and Agricultural Land Use in the Guanting Watershed under Limited Water Resources (www.Guanting.de). My research in the Project focuses on governance of water resources, socio-economic impacts of water scarcity, and evaluation of possible adaptation options that could lead to a more sustainable water use in the Guanting Watershed.
