Prof. Dr. Manfred Stoll is Head of the Department of General and Organic Viticulture at Geisenheim University. After completing his Ph.D. at the University of Adelaide (Australia), he received a postdoctoral fellowship at Dundee (UK), studying plant ecophysiology and remote sensing. He worked as a wine consultant in the Franconian region, Germany.

In 2005 he was appointed as a Scientist in Viticulture at the Geisenheim Research Institution. As a biologist and viticulturist, his research aims to improve our eco-physiological understanding of grapevines and implement these results into applied management practices.

His specific areas of research in viticulture include eco-physiology, remote and proxy sensing, vineyard adaptation and grapevine interaction to environmental stressors, and the impact of climate change on current and future production. Dr. Stoll is a member of several editorial boards of scientific journals.
