Numerical simulation of earth surface processes, land-atmosphere interactions, model-data assimilation strategies


I am an earth scientist specialized in the development of numerical models and model-data assimilation strategies. I am involved in projects focusing on the human – land – atmosphere nexus addressing scientific challenges including:

  • Understanding, quantifying and predicting pathways of sediment in a source-to-sink framework
  • Evolution of Earth’s surface during the Anthropocene (soil formation, transport and deposition) and its implications for environmental sustainability
  • Evolution of Earth's surface over geological timescales (tectonic mountain ranges and volcanoes)
  • The impact of mass movements on landscape evolution and sediment pathways
  • Learning from past landscape evolution to predict future hazard risk (landslides under a changing climate)
  • Transport mechanisms and mass movements in the arctic under a changing climate
