Research Interests

I am a biodiversity scientists fascinated by ecological puzzles. Specifically, I am interested in understanding the linkages between biodiversity causes and effects, context dependency in biodiversity and ecosystem functioning at the ecosystem level (from patterns to mechanisms), and a more holistic perspective of these questions that includes belowground biotic and abiotic components. To understand the complexity associated with biodiversity and its consequences for human livelihoods, I have been using experimental and synthesis approaches.
