Research Interests

I’m an ecologist interested in the systemic processes leading to biogeographic patterns from local to global scale.

My main research interests include:

  • Effect of historic environmental stressors on ecological response characteristics (path dependency of ecosystem reaction). 
  • Cross-scale similarity of ecological response characteristics.
  • Scale-dependence of environmental noise and its effects on the detection and interpretation of ecological patterns.
  • Theoretical concepts and biogeographic patterns related to the energy budget of organisms.
  • Optimization of ecological sampling approaches.
