Research at the Department of Geography and Geology focuses on the natural and social sciences, and is divided in in three working groups. 

The Social and Economic Geography working group deals with issues of geographically imbalanced development. This includes social inequality and unequal economic developments at all geographic scales from local to global.

The Physical Geography working groups investigate physical and biological processes that govern landscape dynamics in the context of human-environment interactions. Research fields span from geomorphological processes, to landscape ecology and the management of city ecosystems.

The  Geology working group has three fields of research. It explores the structure and evolution of mountain ranges and the associated sedimentary basins, examines the dynamics of the near-surface processes in an application-oriented perspective, and analyzes archaeological artifacts in the context of Archaeometry and Cultural Heritage Computing.
