Research interest

My research interest is directed towards ecosystem services through which humans benefit from their surrounding nature. In the face of the Anthropocene, resulting in challenges that pertain to the ecology part of the life sciences, it is of uttermost importance to protect, conserve and restore the mechanisms and resources mandatory for a functioning ecosystem. Furthering my own research, I currently contribute to the project “Aushagerung durch Vornutzung: Auswirkungen auf Flora und Fauna ausgewählter FFH Grünlandtypen”.
