Research interests

I am a plant ecologist and I am intrigued to better understand how different global change drivers affect plant population dynamics and what consequences arise for biodiversity and ecosystem functioning at the community level. I am fascinated by the interplay of different organisms and I am aiming to disentangle direct effects of global change from indirect effects via changes in biotic interactions.

I am using a combination of experiments, modeling and synthesis to answer these research questions. By means of experiments I am able to gain mechanistic understanding in the role of global change drivers for different biological processes, with IPM models I am able to project how climate change will affect population growth and dynamics of plant species while meta-analytical tools help me to synthesize existing data of experiments to detect more general patterns and to unravel knowledge gaps.
