I am a Post-Doc at the Biodiversity and Climate Research Centre (BiK-F) in Frankfurt am Main/Germany. Currently I apply the dynamic global vegetation model LPJ-GUESS to model impacts of climate change, potential distribution of specific plant species, water usage, biome shift, and so on. My focus is on recent drought-induced mortality and carbon storage in forests and savannas. For evaluating my research results I use different software (mainly: R, Grass-GIS, Perl) under Debian Linux.
