Research Interest

I’m a doctoral candidate with a background in Environmental Engineering, where I focused in particular on hydrology and the modelling of the hydrological cycle. My major interests are in simulating, quantifying and understanding the impacts of climate change on surface water resources. I also like to work on the further development of the necessary tools, such as hydrological models, and besides conceptual approaches I also like to apply statistical methods to answer and elaborate the underlying questions. In detail, my work deals with regional catchment hydrology at higher elevations, mostly in Central Asia or Germany. Thus, data scarcity and the integration of various meteorological remote sensing datasets play a crucial role in my daily work to tackle these topics. 

Main interests:

  • (Conceptual) Hydrological modelling & model development
  • Programming & data analysis using statistical methods in the field of hydrology
  • Climate impact, attribution & detection
  • Mountain hydrology
