- Land degradation/desertification, its driving processes and
interactions with “Global Change, Climate and Biodiversity”
focussing on Africa, Asia, South America, Mediterranean region and
- System dynamic modelling of coupled human-environment dryland systems
Geochemical and physical processes interacting with bedrock
I am presently contributing to the
EU research project DeSurvey (2005-2010) on a 70%- basis.
DeSurvey is an EU FP6 Integrated Project
(IP) on desertification considering the interaction and importance of
socio-economy, climate and landscape vulnerability to land degradation.
The project started in March 2005 and is planned for a 5-years period. It
includes 39 partners and covers geographic regions in the Mediterranean
Europe, Tunisia, Algeria, Morocco, China, Senegal and Chile. The EU
contribution is almost 8 million €.
participating in several of the modelling,
remote sensing and GIS/geomatics modules and
WPs and I lead DeSurvey Module
Project monitoring, evaluation, contingency planning and management.

I have been teaching at all levels
and in many fields of Earth Sciences and Physical Geography over the
years. My recent special lecturing
interests focus on:
- Assessment, monitoring and modelling
of dryland dynamics
- Geomorphology with a special reference to land degradation
