Welcome to my webpage.

I have long been fascinated by the spectacular diversity of life, and the rapid rise of Homo sapiens from being just another social mammal, to becoming the most dominant species on Earth. Therefore, I am trained as an interdisciplinary ecologist and maintain broad interest in biodiversity and human ecology.

Check out my research and publications for more about what I study.
