Before joining our institute Vianny Ahimbisibwe was employed as research assistant at the Chair of Tropical Forestry and Chair of Forest Biometrics and System Analysis, TU Dresden. Here his focus was on Farm System Research/Analysis with the application of agent based models in land-use transformation. His main scientific interest lies on forest land-use restoration and sustainable forest management, focusing on small-scale tree-based land–use pathways.

Mr. Ahimbisibwe will work in close cooperation with Thünen Institute of Forest Ecosystems in the project Restoration of Forest Land-use Potentials and Ecosystem Services in Africa. Within this project it will be his primary task to apply cost-benefit analyses of different forest land-use restoration practices and ecosystem services in Africa.
