    Vision Statement

    I am an ecologist interested in understanding environmental change and how it is driven by human activities in the past, present and future. Biological invasions are one example to study this relationship with interdisciplinary research approaches and how it affects agriculture or forestry, but also urban ecosystems across the globe. My research vision is that this work contributes to the protection of biological diversity and the creation of resilient ecosystems.

    I am interested in hearing from students who want to undertake research in biological invasions or agricultural weeds.
