PhD student Lorenz Hänchen will receive a grant from the Tyrolean Young Scientist 2023 program in order to work on making the photochemical reflectance index (PRI) a more reliable proxy for non-photochemical quenching.
Congratulations to Lorenz for this achievement!
Welcome to our new PhD student Anna de Vries who joined our group and who will work within the new Doctoral Program The future of mountain forests: Response to a drier climate on a multiple constraints approach to gross primary productivity of a Pinus sylvestris stand.
Today Michael Steiner successfully defended his MSc thesis on using active chlorophyll fluorescence for diagnosing heat and drought stress in grapevine – congrats!
Within the new Doctoral Program The future of mountain forests: Response to a drier climate, we have one PhD position available aimed at quantifying gross primary productivity of the Scots Pine forest at the FAIR site using a combination of carbonyl sulfide (COS) flux measurements, active and passive chlorophyll fluorescence and modelling. Further information and instructions on how to apply can be found here. Applications will be accepted until 11th April 2023.
Last Friday, Tree and his wife Li prepared delicious Chinese dumplings for lunch!
