Short Bio

Christian’s research broadly focuses on catchment hydrology and the measurement and modelling of streamflow generation and biogeochemical processes. His basic aim is to better understand catchment functioning and the great variability of hydrological behaviours across different temporal and spatial scales. Insights from his research can be applied to assess the impacts of stream regulation and environmental change on the quality and quantity of surface waters.
