Hernán Serrano-León is a researcher PhD candidate at the Albert-Ludwigs University Freiburg (Germany) in a joint doctoral position between the Chairs of Silviculture and of Geobotany. He holds a Dipl. Ing. in Forest Engineering from the Politechnical University of Valencia (Spain) and a double-MSc degree Erasmus Mundus in European Forestry from the University of Eastern Finland UEF and the Albert-Ludwigs University Freiburg (Germany).

Previous to his PhD project, Hernán has worked as a Junior researcher at the European Forest Institute - EFI Planted Forests Facility and at the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis IIASA, where he contributed to generate and transfer science-based management recommendations in diverse projects at European level. His international experience also includes research assistance and academic exchanges with the Austral University of Chile, the University of Göttingen and the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences SLU.

 

Project: MixForChange: Mixed Forest plantations for climate Change mitigation and adaptation

Hernán's PhD is part of the BIODIVERSA project MixForChange , which aims to promote mixed-species forest plantations as nature-based solutions to face climate change by providing science-based guidelines endorsed by forest owners, managers and policy-makers.

The objective of his PhD Project (2021-ongoing) is to provide a mechanistic understanding of how tree diversity can enhance the overall resilience to drought stress (tree survival and growth) of mixed forest plantations. This work is based on dendro-ecological approaches and inventories conducted in the TreeDivNet forest biodiversity experiments.
