Kay Seufferheld works as a PhD student in the Water and Soil Resources working group. In the DYLAMUST project, he collaborates with the University of Tübingen to create a hybrid erosion model which aims to model and examine changes in sediment transport due to land use changes using a combination of classical conceptual modeling, artificial intelligence and machine learning.
