Research activities

My research interest ranges from the small scale of tree physiological processes to the large scale of forest ecosystem carbon budgeting, concerning changing climatic conditions. 

Currently, I am studying responses of forest ecosystems to changing environmental conditions using Swiss and European long-term monitoring data. Some of the topics I am investigating are:

  • The impact of air quality (N deposition and ozone) and climate change on forest growth in European monitoring plots (ECLAIRE)
  • The impact of drought on tree mortality in Swiss forests (Relative mortality)
  • The carbon allocation in trees during mast and non-mast years in Europe (Seeds-C)
