Introduction
As a research associate at the DBFZ - the German Biomass Research Center - I am currently working on the regionalization of biogenic residues in Germany, the assessment of biomass potentials of biogenic by-products in Togo and the identification of waste streams of organic residues in Bogotá, Colombia.

Article
A joint project between West African Science Service Center on Climate Change and Adapted Land Use (WASCAL), the University of Lomé and the German Biomass Research Center (Deutsches Biomasseforschungszentrum; DBFZ) was initiated in 2020. The project aims at evaluating alternative and regenerative energy sources for rural areas and creating the basi...
Article
Bogotá has been operating a single landfill for its 7.4 million inhabitants since 1988. Of the approximately 200,000 Mg deposited, unsorted waste per month, about 42% is of organic origin. For this reason, the German Society for International Cooperation (GIZ) has initiated a project with the city of Bogota and the DBFZ Deutsches Biomasseforschungs...
Thesis
Full-text available
This thesis focuses on land degradation in the hinterland of Rio de Janeiro, part of the highly endangered Brazilian Atlantic Forest biome. Forest and pasture degradation are of outmost concern in the region. Thus, the main objective of this work is to provide a methodology to identify areas that fulfill the aim of increasing forest area, improving...
Article
Full-text available
Pasture degradation is of increasing global concern as it enforces erosion processes and impacts the carbon storage capacities of the soil. Reliable methods for pasture degradation mapping are thus of great use to provide important information for sustainable landscape planning. Our research focusses on the Guapi-Macacu watershed (Rio de Janeiro (R...
Chapter
Progressing land degradation is of increasing global concern because it deteriorates essential ecosystem features, functions, and services as observed in our study area in the highly fragmented Mata Atlântica biome, RJ, Brazil. The prioritization of sites for land rehabilitation is a frequent task for environmental managers and essential to develop...
Chapter
Full-text available
The landscapes of the Atlantic Forest region of Southeast Brazil (SE Brazil) have suffered from a long-term historical deforestation and degradation. The vast majority of former forest areas had been transformed into sugar cane and coffee plantations. Especially in the state of Rio de Janeiro, these crops are no longer economically viable and most...
Conference Paper
The Brazilian Mata Atlˆantica is one of 25 world wide hotspots of biodiversity, with a high degree of species diversity and endemism. Historical land use has reduced the Mata Atlˆantica biome to about 11.5% of its original extent. Efforts in nature conservation in the Mata Atlˆantica of Rio de Janeiro are part of an overall plan to protect larger f...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The complexity of interactions between numerous environmental and socioeconomic systems in the globalised world requires a deeper understanding of the related systems. Global problems, such as climate change, land degradation, energy crisis or poverty cannot be solved without an understanding of system behaviour and structure. For various broadscal...

Archived project
INTECRAL project is a jointly developed scientific cooperation supported by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and the State Secretariat of Agriculture and Livestock Project Rio Rural (SEAPEC-PRR). It aims to improve the competitiveness of the rural economic sector in due consideration of a sustainable watershed management, including environmental risk mitigation and protection of natural resources.
