Field of science Ecology, evolutionary biology

Behavioural Ecologist, I investigate how animals respond to human-caused environmental changes - which species are able to adjust and which are not - and how do the responses influence population dynamics, community composition, and ecosystem function and services.

Associate Professor of long-term Sustainability Science

My present research focuses on understanding the ecological and climate related interlinkages with human activities in the present day and in the long-term historic past. I have a research perspective from natural sciences that is enriched by my own interdisciplinary training and collaborations outside my discipline. From my perspective, we need more transdisciplinary research efforts to be able to evaluate potential future pathways for society at large. We also need a more synthetic view of long-term changes, including cultural, social and political dimensions in addition to natural sciences.
