Landscape ecologist with an interest in patterns and determinants of species richness and composition in space and time in both natural and human modified landscapes. I have most experience from forest systems (boreal forest and montane tropical forests), but have also been studying tropical agricultural landscapes.
Master student interested in ecology, botany and climate change studies. I'm researching effects of extreme drought on plant reproduction, specifically investigating lagged effects one year after drought exposure.
I am a PhD student on the search for climate refugia in boreal forests. By using species distribution modelling, microclimate field observations and transplant experiments, I aim to identify and characterise the microclimate of boreal forest understory species and understand the role of competition from southern expanding species.
PhD student (main supervisor: Ayco Tack)
My main interest is to understand plant distribution patterns. To this end I digitize and analyze historical range maps and relate range shifts to changes in land use, climate and plant traits.
My research mainly focuses on understanding how landscape features and climate change affect patterns of biodiversity and species distributions.
I did my PhD in Kristoffers group on microclimate at range margins of understory species in Sweden. Currently I am employed as a researcher looking at long-term outcomes of a transplant experiment and modelling microclimate in a butterfly lab with Philipp Lehmann.
Postdoc in Ayco Tacks lab
I did my PhD in Kristoffers group and defended in December 2020. Now I am postdoc in Ayco Tacks group but still with collaboration with Kristoffer. I am broadly interested in studying the interaction between plants, pests and pathogens and their natural enemies across a range of habitats spanning from natural to managed systems
