Main domain of research and work

Global change ecology, science-policy interfaces, biodiversity, ecosystems, scenario development

I have worked extensively on the impacts of environmental change on ecological communities, organising workshops and coordinating international research projects. At the science policy interface, I work towards facilitating the synthesis and catalysis of policy-relevant biodiversity and ecosystem research.
