German Centre for Integrative Biodiversity Research (iDiv)
I am a researcher with a background in biodiversity sciences. My interests lie somewhere in between macroecology, land change science, global change biology, "macro"-socioeconomics, and sustainability.
I have experience from field ecology to global-scale interdisciplinary studies. I like to work at large spatial scales, typically use quantitative methods and large datasets, often use terrestrial vertebrates or plants as model systems, and like to compare across different levels of organization (e.g. taxonomic, spatial, temporal).
As of November 2016, I am leading the research group “Macroecology & Society” at the German Centre for Integrative Biodiversity Research (iDiv) in Leipzig, Germany.
