My academic background reflects research in conservation ecology and evolutionary ecology as well as landscape ecology and environmental modeling. My research focuses on community dynamics including abiotic and biotic interactions, which depend on intra- and interspecific variation in demographic processes. I have taken multidisciplinary approaches to address these questions and I have developed novel trait-based neighborhood approaches incorporating observations and experiments at different spatial and temporal scales. Current projects include studies on conservation-, spatial- and evolutionary ecology, especially on community dynamics to reveal ecosystem functioning and ecosystem services in natural and agricultural ecosystems. Furthermore, I am using species distribution models to develop assessments of vascular plant biodiversity change in South Africa. My research goal is to achieve sustainable development strategies related to climate change, biodiversity and land management.
