Google Scholar Group Profile

The focus of our work is on the development and application of economic simulation models from farm to global scale to analyze quantitatively questions in the agri-food system related to sustainability and provision of eco-systems services. Recent examples relate to optimal farm management and investment strategies in a changing market and policy environment considering risk, regional scale analysis of structural change and nutrient exchanges between farms in Agent-Based Models and long-term projections of the global food system.

The working group, established in 2017, serves as a hub for economic modeling in research and teaching at institute and faculty level. Master students enrolled in our AFECO program can obtain a minor in economic modeling based on our courses.

We collaborate in numerous projects within international research networks, and offer our students and young researchers an internationally oriented teaching and research environment.
