  PostDoc at UQAM,

 Montreal, Canada 










I completed my Doctorate at the University of Freiburg, Chair of Silviculture, focusing on the 'Drought tolerance of Douglas-fir, Norway spruce and Silver fir in the Black Forest region'. I am now a PostDoc in Forestry and Environmental Science at UQAM in Montreal, Canada.
