Katharina Albrich is a PhD student at the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna. In her thesis, she investigates forest resilience to climate change and disturbances using simulation modelling. She is particularly keen to understand the mechanisms at work in mountain forests and how a sustainable future can be insured for these forests and the people who depend on them. Since the beginning of her bachelor studies, she is closely affiliated with the International Forestry Students’ Association and she has a special interest in forestry education and science communication.
Areas of expertise: climate change and disturbance impacts on forests, forest management, forest ecosystem services
