I am a plant ecologist investigating the relative influence of local interactions on the ecosystem responses in a changing environment. With plant communities as an ecosystem entrance and field experiment in cold environments as a central approach, I am participating in the scrutiny of the processes underlying the structure and dynamics of communities. Considering the inter-compartment connectivity of the processes and their spatiotemporal variability, I aim at favouring an integrative approach in ecology.
