I am a postdoctoral researcher whose interests lie in the fields of community ecology and global change science. My purpose is to deep our understanding on how biological communities react to environmental disturbances across temporal and spatial scales, as well as to find means to increase stability of critical ecosystem functions and services. To this end, I combine field observations, experimental approaches and statistical modelling. I am mostly attracted to using lakes and ponds as model system. Despite their importance to both the provision of key resources to human welfare and maintenance of biodiversity, these freshwater ecosystems are highly susceptible to changes in our global environment driven by human activities.
During 2018-2021 I will be working in between the Limnology Unit at Uppsala University (http://www.ieg.uu.se/limnology/) and the Plankton Ecology Group at Oldenburg University (https://www.icbm.de/en/planktology/) supported by an international postdoc grant from the Swedish Research Council VR (https://www.vr.se). If you are a student, there are always opportunities to develop your thesis work with my collaborators and me in any research line we work on. I am also very keen to colloraborate with researchers in connected projects within and across scientific disciplines.
