Geoecologist, Soil Scientist
Researcher ID: www.researcherid.com/rid/C-8423-2013
I am a Geoecologist (Diploma) graduated at the University of Bayreuth, Germany, with a major in Soil Science under the supervision of Prof. Wolfgang Zech. This combination of soil science and geoecology strongly influences my academic career. I consider soils as a complex natural body, which is in tight interactions with other spheres of the environment. Therefore, I always try to link my basic soil research to the impact that it might have in a larger context. This refers for example to the understanding of controlling mechanisms of sorption of dissolved organic matter und different climatic conditions with to the water quality in ground and surface waters. My research is funded by different funding agencies in Germany, the EU, and Russia and published in about 150 peer-reviewed manuscripts. Based on this experience I am also serving academia as member of several evaluation panels. It is very important for me to involve students into practical education. Therefore, I am organizing quite a high number of field courses besides my regular teaching.
