I am a macroecologist interested in what drives the diversity and distribution of species, and how environmental changes have and will impact the natural world.

In June 2017 I started a new position as tenure-track Assistant Professor at the Center of Macroecology, Evolution and Climate, hosted by the Natural History Museum of Denmark, at University of Copenhagen.

My research program focuses on macroecology of the Anthropocene, trying to quantify the impact of humans on the distribution of life on Earth from local to global scales – relative to “natural” processes. My hope is that this research will help improve predictions of how nature will respond to environmental change over the next decades. I am thus also very interested in how we can apply this knowledge to decision-making in conservation of biodiversity.
