I am a member of "Loglife" project, which is a long-term common garden experiment in which different tree species to decompose in a fertile broadleaved forest on clayey soils, and an infertile coniferous forest on sandy soils.  I mainly focus on the topic of "species traits and wood decomposition of temperate tree species". I am interested in the wood traits, nutrients cycling and decomposition dynamics of dead wood and try to understand the effects of species and environmental variation, and trophic interactions during the process of wood decompostion.
