Areas of expertise
I am a community ecologist and my research places a special emphasis on the effects of global change, mainly land-use change, on biodiversity, ecosystem functioning and ecosystem services. My research has a focus on applied ecology questions but with a solid theoretical and basic research background. My ultimate goal is to understand the effects of ecosystem degradation on ecosystem functioning and integrity while finding ways to align economic development with biodiversity conservation within human-dominated landscapes.
