Research Focus

I am a community ecologist. In particular, I am interested in how biotic interactions, environmental filtering and dispersal limitation as well as their interplays shape diversity and its variations across space and over time. My approach encompassed several diversity facets (e.g. functional, phylogenetic and genetic) and is integrative of spatial, temporal and taxonomic scales.


Assembly rules – Biogeography – Global changes – β diversity – α diversity – Null models


2020 – 2022 Synthesis of allometric and stoichiometric regulation of spatial dynamics – SP10 of Dynacom project funded by German Science Foundation (DFG) and has been developed in collaboration with the Wadden Sea National Park of Lower Saxony.
