Research Options

I am available and interested in collaborations (e.g. clusters, grants).
I am interested in and conduct interdisciplinary research.
I am interested in working with undergraduate students on research projects.


My research explores how the arrangement of different land uses and habitats across landscapes affect biodiversity and ecosystem services. I use a variety of approaches, from modelling to fieldwork to remote sensing to answer this question.

My work aims to improve our knowledge about how human activities influence landscape and ecosystem dynamics. My ultimate goal is to provide information that can be used to predict how future landscape changes will affect biodiversity and the provision of ecosystem services, and inform land management decisions.
