Annika Künne

Research assistant

As a research assistant of the GI Science Group my responsibilities ranges from project work to teaching within the bachelor study program.
My main interests are development and application of hydrological and water quality models. Hereby my research focus is the design of measures for environmental management as well as adaptation strategies, which consider changing land use and climate conditions, especially at the study site in Brazil where I am working since 2009. Currently I am working within the BMBF funded Project Integrated Eco Technologies and Services for a Sustainable Rural Rio de Janeiro (INTECRAL).
Besides, I am doing my PhD in the field of hydrological modeling within a meso-scaled river basin at the Atlantic Forest of Brazil. Therefore, a hydro-climatic monitoring network was implemented, data collected and modelled.

Key research areas

  • Water and substance modeling and simulation of scenarios
  • Regionalization of meso-scale model results to large-scale regions
  • Hydrological processes in tropical regions
  • Design, implementation and maintenance of hydrological monitoring networks
