My interests span across plant ecology, macroecology, community ecology, land-use science and conservation. I strive to use biodiversity big data to uncover the factors behind the distribution of biodiversity on Earth across scales and how these interact to form communities. I work mostly on vascular plants, but I often venture out into other taxonomic groups. I am passionate about old-growth forests. Not only for the sense of awe that they inspire, but because they can teach us a tremendous amount on how to manage natural resources sustainably. I a concerned about global-change and aim at conducting conservation relevant research. To relax, I code in R.
