Research interests

- Understanding how population dynamics, structure, diversity and gene flow is affected by changes in land-use and land-cover.
- Understanding the process of biodiversity loss and the impact of anthropogenic stressors in this process.
- Identifying vulnerable species, traits and taxa and help designing conservation measures.
- Integrating biodiversity conservation and the sustainable use of ecosystems by human populations.
