Dr. Christian Birkel recently joined the Department of Geography at the University of Costa Rica as an Assistant Professor. He is a catchment hydrologist interested in the measurement and modeling of runoff generation processes and biogeochemical cycling. His main motivation is the quantification and understanding of dynamic systems that may inform evidence-based decision making. Dr. Birkel graduated with a Master in Hydrology from the University of Freiburg in Germany and continued his doctoral studies at the James Hutton Institute in Scotland. During his postdoctoral studies at the University of Aberdeen he specialized in hydrological tracer techniques and their application to assess catchment storage dynamics and susceptibility to extremes. Dr. Birkel also worked as a consultant for the European Union, the World Bank and most recently on a project for the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia.
