Isabel Seifert-Dähnn, Ph.D. has environmental sciences and economics as background. She is interested in human-ecosystem interactions to determine how changes in natural or technical conditions influence benefits society derives from these systems. Her research covers flood loss modelling, impacts of climate change and land-use on water quality and quantity, flood and drought adaptation, integrated natural scientific and economic modelling, assessment of water-derived ecosystem services, sanitation and waste water developments and economics of the water framework directive. For her research she uses tools from social-science such as quantitative and qualitative surveys or Delphi methods and combines them with modelling approaches such as Bayesian Network Models. Isabel was leading international projects in Sri Lanka, India and Europe and has also worked in China.
