Researcher interests: Biodiversity quantification and conservation, in particular developing tools for quantifying diversity patterns and ecosystem services, such as pollination and soil fertility, in agro-natural ecosystems and the mechanisms that regulate them. Developing conservation planning tools for human-dominated landscapes.
