Kathrin is starting her PhD within Isodrones in Januar. Her main interest is in the functioning of water movement along the soil-plant-atmosphere interface. In her PhD she will be focusing on collecting data sets to resolve short-term dynamics of plant water uptake in response to varying environmental conditions and plant parameters. What excites her most about the Isodrones project is the possibility to combine multiple ecohydrological methods to gain insights into the mechanisms behind plant water uptake and transport as well as the strong interdisciplinary approach.
Kathrin did her MSc degree in Hydrology at the University of Freiburg but has been interested in soil sciences and ecosystem physiology throughout my studies. During both her bachelor and master thesis she gained experience in monitoring plant water uptake using water stable isotopes and innovative in-situ methods.
In her free time Kathi likes drawing, swimming, going to concerts (preferably punk) and experiencing adventures while travelling the world.
