Matthias Baumann

Senior Researcher

My name is Matthias Baumann, and I am a land-use scientist working in the conservation Biogeography Lab. I am primarily interested in reconstructing and understanding land-use processes and establish causal relationships between these processes and the factors that drive them. My work is interdisciplinary, highly collaborative and I am always looking for interesting collaborations and projects where I can bring my expertise into a different, for me new, context. Check out my research profile as my publications to get a more detailed overview of my research activities. I am also heavily involved in the teaching profile of our lab, including courses on global land-use dynamics, introductory statistics and python-programming.
