Profile Summary

I am an animal ecologist with general research interests at the nexus of biodiversity research, landscape ecology, and conservation biology. I received a PhD degree from the University of Ulm (Germany) in 2007, where I also was a postdoctoral researcher until moving on to a researcher position at the University of Lisbon (Portugal) in 2009. I joined the School of Environment and Life Sciences as a faculty member in November 2015. Using a combination of field-based research and modern approaches to statistical data analysis and modeling, much of my work revolves around advancing our understanding of how vertebrates, particularly bats, are affected by anthropogenic habitat fragmentation and land-use change, and to elucidate the mechanistic basis underlying patterns of species persistence in fragmented, human-modified landscapes. My research is geographically broad in scope, but has a clear focus on tropical ecosystems (South America, Africa).
