Professor

The fields of teaching and research are forest health as well as industrial forest biotechnology and biorefining. In terms of forest health, key issues include the epigenetic adaptation of forest trees to environmental disturbances and climate change and the use and management of forest biodiversity. A special research topic is the potential of forest biodiversity sites and short rotation coppice plantations to enter the carbon compensation markets. Research on the production of carbon-neutral bio-based products and materials and the calculation of the carbon footprint (Scope1, 2 and 3, and LCA) are at the heart of the research in industrial forest biotechnology and biorefining topic.
