Dr Wolfram Buss is a biologist with an interest in sustainable food and energy systems. He received a Bachelor’s degree in Biology from Justus Liebig University (2010) (Gießen, Germany), a Master’s degree in Environmental Protection and Agricultural Food Production from University of Hohenheim (Stuttgart, Germany) and the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (2012) (Karlsruhe, Germany) and a PhD in Atmospheric and Environmental Sciences from the University of Edinburgh (2016) (Edinburgh, UK). His PhD and post-doctoral research at the UK Biochar Research Centre (UKBRC) of the University of Edinburgh spanned the fields of biology, environmental sciences, chemistry, agriculture and environmental engineering. He currently is a visiting fellow at Fenner School of Environment and Society at ANU.
Wolfram is working towards optimising biochar systems to support sustainable food production and to mitigate climate change. Biochar production is a negative emission technology, stabilising carbon contained in biomass resulting in a long-term stable carbon pool.
