Being trained in mathematics and numerical modeling, I am involved in the modeling activities with LPJmL. Current focus of my work is the identification and characterization of managed grasslands and the impact assessment of livestock production. I am generally interested in biogeochemical cycles in aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems.
The connection of productivity of grassland under different management practices and harvesting options to the feed demand of livestock production systems touches aspects of land and water use as well as food security and feeding efficiency. For me, the feed-back between primary productivity of grasses and secondary production of herbivores under changing climatic and management conditions is of particular interest.
