Research

 

Biodiversity, Ecosystem-functioning, Community Ecology and Conservation are my research interests. As a PhD I am working on terrestrial ecology with a focus on insect plant interactions. In my PhD thesis I aimed on identifying the importance of plant functional diversity for sustaining pollinator diversity.

My current project: Monitoring of insects and their ecosystematic functions in a school garden network
