Research Interests

- Processes and dynamics of biodiversity assemblages
- Epiphytic host preferences and patterns

Vascular epiphytes make up a large part of tropical plant diversity. However, due to their difficult access high up in the tree, studies investigating their long-term dynamics are scarce. As a doctoral candidate, I want to fill this gap by studying the long-term dynamics of an epiphyte community in the tropical lowlands of Panama. The goal of my research is to contribute to a better understanding of patterns and processes of diversity and abundance over time. Therefore, I collect data both directly from epiphytes on trees in the field, as well as with the help of modelling epiphyte community dynamics.
