Climate change, ticks and tick-borne diseases in Germany, Oct 2013 to June 2015

in German: Auswirkung des Klimawandels auf das Vorkommen, die Aktivität und Verbreitung als Überträger von Krankheitserregern bedeutender Schildzecken, financed by the German Federal Environment Agency.

Bluetongue disease model, June 2008 to June 2010

Development of a spatio-temporal epidemic model to explain the spread of bluetongue disease, StartUp project financed by the Vetmeduni Vienna.

Dynamic epidemic modelling, April 2009 to July 2012

Investigation of the application of remote sensing data for epidemic predictions within the project Global Monitoring of Soil Moisture for Water Hazards Assessment (GMSM). GMSM is a joint research project coordinated by TU-Wien in cooperation with ZAMG, BOKU, VUW, ARC, GeoVille and PLUS. It was approved within the 6th call of the Austrian Space Programme, founded by the FFG.

Usutu-virus model, Jan 2007 to Dec 2007

Development of an epidemic model to simulate West Nile virus and Usutu virus outbreaks in the region of Vienna, financed by the Hochschuljubiläumsstiftung der Stadt Wien (in German).

Climate forcing of an epidemic model, Jan 2007 to Dec 2007

Research grant financed by the University of Vienna.

ELDAS, Dec 2001 to Nov 2004

Development of a European Land Data Assimilation System to predict Floods and Droughts (ELDAS), which is supported by the European Union in the context of the Fifth Framework Program (contract nr EVG1-CT-2001-00050). ELDAS is designed to develop a general data assimilation infrastructure for estimating soil moisture fields on the regional (continental) scale, and to assess the added value of these fields for the prediction of the land surface hydrology in models used for Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP) and climate studies.
