 Research Interests

My background is in vegetation ecology focusing on the role of biodiversity for ecosystem processes. Since 2014, my special interest is on the role of acoustic diversity - as one aspect of biodiversity – in this context. I am interested in basic research projects for a better ecological understanding of the ecological functioning of sound in a landscape as well as in adapting ecoacoustic approaches for ecosystem monitoring and conservation.
