Department of Soil Physics
My research aims at the understanding and characterization of mass and energy fluxes in soils. In that context, I explore from the soil physics perspective, and always in collaboration with the fellow scientists, the non-linear feedbacks between plants, soil ecology, soil chemistry and soil hydrology. My scientific curiosity is focused on the understanding and the analysis between the discrepancy of theoretical predictions and actual observations (direct or indirect) in soils. To achieve this, I am combining:
Current projects/research: Transport of natural toxins in the soil-plant-atmosphere continuum, reactive transport in soil, preferential transport of solutes in soils, coupled water and heat transport under bare soil evaporation
Human-Wildlife Conflicts (HWC) in Southern Africa
Impacts of climate change on terrestrial vegetation: a macroecological perspective (Interim evaluation habilitation)
