I am an enthusiastic young researcher working in environmental, ecological and climate sciences. My interests are centred on understanding the interactions between the terrestrial carbon and water cycles and vegetation functions under changing environmental conditions. My work combines ecological datasets from different observational scales and vegetation models of different complexities to gain a mechanistic understanding of the key physical and biological processes involved. I like to bridge the gap between different scientific communities and collaborate in several fields, notably ecophysiology, earth system modelling and atmospheric sciences.
