Adjunct Associate Professor

Stillingsbeskrivelse

In my research I aim at disentangling how human-induced disturbances, including climate and land-use changes, are affecting species composition, diversity, and distribution in natural ecosystems. As in computers, where change in some components will affect their functionality, so will the ongoing changes in species affect the way nature works, including its multiple services that we heavily depend on. I also analyse how species characterisitcs (their functional traits) and changes to biodiversity can affect ecosystem services and functions.
