Research interest

  • Developing integrative methods for biodiversity prediction based on holistic descriptions of the environment
  • Combined effects of land use (type and intensity)  and climate changes on biodiversity
  • Ecological processes underlying land use and climate impacts on biodiversity at different spatio-temporal scales
  • Spatio-temporal dynamics of land uses and landscapes
  • Understanding functional and multi-specific connectivity: linking connectivity to landscape characteristics and population size and distribution.
