Dissertation topic:

„Factors influencing rates of soil forming processes in different climates“
In my dissertation, I am dealing with the quantitative influence of soil-forming factors on the process of podzolization. The structured compilation, statistical analysis and modelling of global data will provide new insights into the relative importance of the individual soil-forming factors for the onset and the temporal course of podzolization. The open-source software environment R was used for all statistical computing and graphics.
