- Research interest:Study, analyses and advise on renewable (bio-) energy sources. I have experience with the establishment, the management and the harvest of short-rotation coppice plantation of fast-growing trees, in particular poplar. Conversion of woody biomass for the production of renewable electricity and/or green heat. Mainly the biological and productivity aspects of short-rotation coppice plantations fall within my field of expertise.
