Biogeography and community ecology


I seek understanding the processes behind biodiversity gradients and the organization of ecological communities.

I study the effects of current and past environmental conditions and ecological processes on the geographic patterns of biodiversity, the role of species niche and ecological interactions in the organization of biological communities in time and space, and the use and misuse of biodiversity big data.
