I am the programmer of our group, but also trained as an ecologist and ecological modeller. I am keen on applying my knowledge in statistics and modeling in projects aiming at mitigating effects of climate change. At the moment, the focus of my work is on winter dormancy in temperate trees and on the potentials of agroforestry as a sustainable land-use form. I also love dancing, hiking and drinking coffee in the sun.
