Background and Research Interests

Hydrological processes and modelling

  • Erosion and associated transport of substances 
  • Process based hydrological modelling

New model approaches for catchments at the lower mesocale

  • Surface runoff and hydrologic connectivity
  • Organisation principles of water and mass transport in heterogeneous landscapes

River basin management

  • Emission of nutrients and contaminants from point and diffuse sources
    • Impact of landuse and climate change on terrestrial water cycles and mass transport

    Teaching

    Development of the curriculum for the international master study program "Water Science and Engineering" (expected starting date: 2016)
