Mathias Neumann Andersen was here until 1992, after which he moved to the research center in Foulum near Viborg. Here he has done extensive work - first as an associate professor and since August 2013 as professor of Crop Science and Water Management. Mathias is strongly committed to the Department's education of PhD students.

“I look forward to continuing to work with Mathias N. Andersen. We have been working together since we were young in Statens Planteavlsforsøg, and it has always been a great pleasure. It will be exciting to have him join the management team, and I am sure that he will make a positive contribution to the future development of the Department of Agroecology, ”says Head of Department Jørgen E. Olesen.
