In this section you’ll find a list of the ongoing research projects I’m primarily involved in. The links will take you to the project websites, where you’ll find more detailed information on the project goals, project partners, activities, etc. If that doesn’t satisfy your curiosity, feel free to contact me.


APE Alpine Paleoelevation/-climate Experiment

APE is part of the DFG (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft) priority programme MB-4D („Mountain Building Processes in 4D“) and aims to link Earth surface processes to lithospheric dynamics with the aid of palaeoclimate simulations and stable isotope altimetry.

Q-TiP Tipping points of lake systems in the arid zone of Central Asia

Q-TiP is a project funded by the German Ministry for Education and Research (BMBF) and investigates the climatic controls on water resources in Central Asia with regard to the development of arid environments and their relevance for scenarios of ongoing and potential future climate change.

EarthShape Earth Surface Shaping by Biota

EarthShape is a priority research programme (Schwerpunktprogramm, SPP) funded by the German Research Foundation (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft, DFG). The German-Chilean research initiative explores how biologic processes (in addition to climate and tectonics) shape the Earth surface and modulate the impact of climate change on the Earth surface.

EXTREME Extreme Tectonics and Rapid Erosion in Mountain Environments

EXTREME is funded by the European Research Council (ERC) and investigates the coupling between climate and tectonic interactions at plate corners.
