Background and activities

I am a PhD Candidate at the Centre for Biodiversity Dynamics. In my project I study community dynamics and ecosystem services in Brazilian Atlantic rainforest. I utilize joint species distribution models to illustrate whether plant-animal interactions, namely pollinator and seed dispersal networks, are influenced across the forest fragmentation gradient. Additionally, I will look at how ecosystem services provided by the species interactions are affected by the fragmentation-related environmental factors.

Research interests: Community ecology, conservation biology, sustainability, statistical modelling
