Ben Colpaert is a PhD researcher at the ISOFYS laboratory as well as at the laboratory of Plant Ecology. He conducts research in the field of pomology, unravelling the complex nitrogen fluxes in- and outside of pear trees using stable isotopes and ecophysiological sensors. Thereby using this knowledge to on the one hand validating the rapid improving spectroscopy techniques considered to be a form of rapid, non-destructive tissue testing and on the other hand to achieve an optimized fertilization schedule for pear trees, which results in maximum N utilization efficiency, fruit yield and quality, a balanced growth of the trees and minimum environmental impact.
