Research Interests

I am currently pursuing a PhD as part of the BMBF-funded transdisciplinary project NamTip – Understanding and Managing Desertification Tipping Points in Dryland Social-Ecological Systems – A Namibian Perspective (https://www.namtip.uni-bonn.de/) , which aims to understand ecological processes and societal and management issues associated with desertification tipping points (DTPs) in the semi-arid savannah grasslands of Namibia.
My work in this project is taking place in Namibia and focuses on hyperspectral sensing and ecological analyses of forage production, quality, and vegetation cover in a semi-arid savannah grassland under management and climatic pressure.
