Stefan Liehr has been a researcher at ISOE since 2003 and heads the research unit Water Resources and Land Use. At the institute his research interest is aimed at a better understanding of the coupling between societal and natural structures and processes. His focus is the sustainable shaping of these relations in the field of water and land management. Before joining ISOE, he studied physics at the Goethe University in Frankfurt am Main with a focus on nonlinear dynamics, geophysics and chemistry. He received his doctorate in the field of physics of complex systems at the Max Planck Institute for Dynamics and Self-Organization in Göttingen and the University of Bremen. In his doctoral thesis he dealt with the modelling of non-stationary, stochastic processes and the recognition of change signals in complex dynamics.

Focus of research

  • Modelling of social-ecological systems
