Research interests

I am an animal ecologist with a fondness for insects (especially carabid beetles, wild bees, hoverflies and butterflies). My research covers many aspects of biodiversity and thus I analyse the structure, dynamics and functions of ecological systems across a variety of temporal and spatial scales. In particular I seek to understand the effects of systematic variations in environmental conditions such as that of global change on functional, phylogenetic and taxonomic aspects of species assemblages as well as on species interactions and the provisioning of ecosystem services. I work on several disciplinary levels such as population genetics and dynamics (fragmentation & dispersal), community ecology (disentangling scale and environmental factors), ecosystem functioning (function & reliability) and macroecology (general rules).

Currently, I am investigating the effects of global change on bees, hoverflies, butterflies and plants across Europe and I assess their future risks according to changes in land use, climate, and resource distribution. I am also interested in investigating the scale-specificity of these effects and to improve our ability to combine the best information across different spatial scales to better assess regional impacts of global change.
