My overarching research interest is in quantifying and understanding biodiversity responses to anthropogenic environmental change. In addition, I aim to apply this knowledge in integrated assessments for supporting environmental policy and biodiversity conservation. In my research, I employ and combine statistical and process-based modelling, thereby covering a variety of taxonomic groups (plants, invertebrates, vertebrates), anthropogenic pressures (climate, land use, chemical pollution) and spatial scales (from local to global). I believe that comparative as well as integrated approaches are helpful to shed more light on the context- and scale-dependency of biodiversity change.
