Areas of Interest

I am broadly interested in understanding and predicting the current loss of biodiversity.

My work aims to:

  • Identify species' life-history, ecological and behavioural traits that can be used as predictors of extinction risk and invasion success.
  • Explore the role that distinct anthropogenic impacts (in interaction with species' traits) play in current biodiversity loss.
  • Understand the importance of individual variation for population dynamics.

More information about my research and the group can be found here.
