Christine’s research was on the effect of management on Carbon pools and fluxes in European forests. She explored with LPJ-GUESS the effects of different harvest regimes and intensities and of planting selected tree species, also outside their natural range.
Before joining KIT, Christine completed her PhD in modelling CO2 fluxes from peatlands. The aim was to identify, investigate and understand processes that are most relevant for greenhouse gas uptake and emission in natural and drained peatlands. Christine left the team in summer 2020 and works now at the Environment department at the Rural District Office in Garmisch.
