Daniel obtained his doctoral degree and diploma degree in agricultural sciences from the Georg-August-University Göttingen and the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, respectively.

The overarching goal of Daniel’s research program is to advance the understanding of land-system change, including its multiple repercussions on human welfare, food production, and the environment with a geographic focus on Central and Eastern Europe, the former Soviet Union, Southeast Asia, and Western China. Daniel tackles these issues with integrative approaches that combine his expertise in resource economics and natural sciences.
