Fabian Nippgen

My research is broadly centered on exploring how water moves through landscapes and how this movement is affected by different landscape characteristics (such as topography, soils, geology, and vegetation) and climatic variability. I use field-based and modeling approaches to disentangle these relationships in both natural and disturbed environments.
