Research Interests

His work intends to install the very first flux tower of the Congo Basin forest within the UNESCO Man and Biosphere Reserve of Yangambi (Tshopo Province, former Orientale Province, DRC). A flux tower measures the flux of important greenhouse gases (GHGs; CO2, CH4 and N20) which ultimately contributes to quantifying the global GHG budget.

Besides his management work, he has a great interest in the study of photosynthetic capacity of plants, actually focusing on plants originating from the Sahelian savannahs.
