Stefan Martin Strohmeier
Scientist - Restoration Initiative on Dryland Ecosystems

Dr. Stefan Strohmeier is associate scientist for soil and water conservation with a focus on watershed management and modeling. His current research interests include the assessment of environmental – water and soil dynamic – processes at the field and watershed scale; watershed management; merging field experiments with modeling; and conducting risk and uncertainty assessments of human interventions, particularly soil and water conservation activities.

He has authored dozens of peer-reviewed journal articles, and has written several book chapters and conference papers on mitigating land degradation and improving livelihoods. Dr. Strohmeier holds a Ph.D. in environmental engineering from the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences (“BOKU” University), Vienna, Austria, where he also worked as a researcher.
