Associate Research Fellow


My research goals are to shed light on the behaviour, dynamics and resilience of peatlands and their impact on the carbon cycle and on hydrology. After completing an MSc in Physical Geography (Ruhr-Universität, Germany) I worked on millennial carbon accumulation processes in northern peatlands during my PhD (Université du Québec à Montréal, UQAM, Canada). I then pursued postdoctoral research with the study of groundwater-peatland interactions (UQAM) and peatlands restoration modelling (McGill University, Canada).

My current project aims at evaluating the feedback effect of peatlands on climate by modelling the carbon exchanges between peatlands and the atmosphere in a dynamic way. This project is funded by a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Research Fellowship from the European Commission.

Broad research specialisms:

  • Peatlands
  • Vegetation and climate interactions
  • Carbon dynamics
  • Ecohydrology
  • Hydrogeology
  • Modelling


PhD Environmental Sciences (Université du Québec à Montréal, Canada)
