Dr. Michael Mischurow

I am a postdoc working on development of the ecosystem model LPJ-GUESS, so far I've been involved in MERGE and ExpeER projects. As can be seen below, my background is in soil science and my general interests lie in the water and gas transport at soil-plant-atmosphere boundary.

My major contribution to the LPJ-GUESS so far has been diurnal cycle for canopy exchange module.

Currently working on finalising ExpeER modelling toolbox.
