Expertise

Biometeorology:

-       Long-term micrometeorology at 5 intensive meteorological tower sites – high quality, continuous atmospheric measurements of motion, energy content and radiation

-       Development of the eddy covariance technique and turbulence data post processing (data quality control, correction for low-pass filtering effects in tubes, development of commercial sensor designs and software.

-       3D biophysical modeling of radiative transfer and canopy photosynthesis in forests and agroforestry systems.

-       Deposition of atmospheric trace substances to terrestrial ecosystems

Ecosystems research:

-       CO2 and H2O gas exchange with the atmosphere (leaves, soil, ecosystem)

-       Ecosystem Carbon budgets and their components

-       Nitrogen deposition and cycling in forests.

-       Dynamic ecosystem modeling (MixForSvat, COUP, Biome-BGC) and model intercomparisons (a number of models from European modeling groups)

-       Regional greenhouse gas balances

Industrial Ecology(teaching at DTU)

-       Environmental sustainability concepts for industrial systems from local to global scales

-       Material and energy flows in industrial and natural ecosystems

-       Life cycle assessment

-       Ecological network analysis for eco industrial parks

Interdisciplinary, cross cultural research

-       Effects of land-use and land-use change in tropical rain forest margins in Indonesia

-       Prediction of climate change impacts on natural resources at local scales

International experience

-       64 peer-reviewed, international scientific publications in journals and books (56 ISI listed, H-index 20, times cited 3867, Web of Knowledge 11.01.2014)

-       European Geophysical Union member since 1996, convener of session AS2.1: Air-Land Interactions since 2008.
