Professional Experience



  • QUICS 'Quantifying Uncertainty in Integrated Catchment Studies'
    Quantifying Uncertainty in Integrated Catchment Studies (QUICS) is an EU funded FP7 Marie Curie Initial Training Network (ITN) which will run for 4 years from 1st June 2014. The overall aim of QUICS is to provide high levels of training and carry out research in order to take the implementation of the Water Framework Directive (WFD) to the next level and improve water quality management by assessing the uncertainty of integrated catchment model water quality predictions.
  • YangTze Geo
    Within the framework of the BMBF funded project YANGTZE GEO (2008 - 2015), German and Chinese scientists jointly focus on those risks. Together with their partners from the China University of Geosciences in Wuhan and the Chinese Academy of Sciences, five German research groups conduct collaborative studies on soil erosion, mass movements, diffuse matter inputs, and sediment pathways. An integrative approach was set up in order to combine multi-scale investigation method and state-of-the-art techniques from soil science, geology, hydrology, geophysics, geodesy, remote sensing, and data survey and monitoring.
