Research interests

I am interested in forest dynamics and forest management, in particular:

  • the influence of climatic changes on forests
  • forest dynamics as influenced by natural disturbances
  • mountain forest ecology, in particular regeneration ecology
  • silviculture, including silvicultural strategies to cope with climate change

With my research, I aim to provide a scientific foundation for sustainable forest management, with adequate consideration given to ecological, economic and social aspects.

Main activities

  • Leader of the research programme Forests and climate change
  • Leader of several research projects (see below)
  • Extension and publication activities
  • Board member of the Mountain Forest Tending Group
