Personal profile

Research interests

Stefanie researches the hydrological impacts of agricultural land abandonment in the mountain environments of Nepal and Colombia. Her research will use freestations (low cost environmental sensors) to look at infiltration dynamics & preferential flow, evaporative differences and stream discharge across different stages of agricultural land abandonment. In addition, soil science and functional ecology methods will give insights into the hidden processes linking vegetation cover and hydrology.
