With my research I aim to contribute to achieving sustainable water use world-wide. I use large spatiotemporal datasets to map water consumption and analyse how water can be allocated more sustainable and more efficient.
Some questions I have addressed are:
- How can policies of water-scarce countries be enriched by Water Footprint Assessment to achieve sustainable and efficient use of water resources?
- What are the limits to the use of green water (evaporation of rain water), the largest water source for agriculture and forestry, and how close are we to these limits?
- How does the water footprint of crops vary across the Earth and during dry, wet, warm and cold years?
