Atomic resolution scanning transmission electron microscopy (experimental) In my PhD I am working on quantitative analysis of heterostructure interfaces with Scanning Transmission Electron Microscopy (STEM). I am particularly interested in a novel technique called momentum-resolved STEM. There, hundreds of diffraction patterns are recorded every second which allows us to map fundamental material properties at atomic resolution. The aim of my project …

Improved Sodium Magnetic Resonance Imaging of the Brain Project Summary: Sodium Magnetic Resonance Imaging offers complementary information to traditional proton (hydrogen) MRI. The signal available for imaging sodium is however orders of magnitude smaller than its proton MRI counterpart, therefore providing technical challenges to acquire sufficiently high-resolution images in sufficiently constrained scan times. Both the Institute of Neuroscience and Medicine at FZJ …
Improving prediction of crop yield with long-term meteorological forecasts and data assimilation The prediction of crop yield can be improved by correcting model simulations with measurement data using data assimilation methods. In this project, new data types like captured by stationary and mobile cosmic ray probes, and sun-induced fluorescence will be used for this purpose. The improved quality of weather predictions …
Analysis and forecasting of soil water storage for rain-fed agriculture Soil water is a critical resource in many agricultural systems. Climate variability represents a significant risk in these systems, which has been addressed in the past through seasonal weather outlooks. A pilot assessment of the potential to extend season weather outlooks to plant available soil water (PASW) has shown promising results …
