During my PhD I am investigating high-resolution ecohydrological process dynamics at the urban soil-plant-atmosphere interface and the ‘green’ and ‘blue’ water flux partitioning. That includes novel field experiments using direct in-situ monitoring of the isotope composition of evaporated atmospheric moisture using cavity ring-down spectroscopy. Further, I am studying surface water isotope and environmental DNA dynamics in major rivers of Berlin to understand the impact of greenspaces and built areas on the ecohydrology of these rivers.
