Research interests

I am an ecologist with a broad interest in biodiversity distribution. In my research I combine field monitoring data and laboratory genetic analysis to assess changes in patterns of biodiversity distribution in natural and anthropogenic environments. I have experience both in the molecular lab, as well as collecting biological samples in the field.

I have joint the ADVANCE project to assisting the implementation of FAIR principles on biodiversity monitoring data and metadata from the Helmholtz Centres for research and applied biodiversity conservation.
