Hello, I'm Christian.

Connect with me
I am a quantitative ecologist working with tree-rings and dynamic vegetation models. I write papers and code, and I teach and give talks.

My current research foci are climatic extremes and the corresponding vegetation responses, embedded in the contexts of forest productivity, vegetation dynamics, and climate monitoring.

I mainly employ tree-ring proxies, but also work with other terrestrial carbon proxies and biological indicators. I pursue inter- and transdisciplinary research and I am a committed contributor to methodological development in the field of dendroecology.
