Work interests

I am interested in ecological stability, tipping points, and the effects of eco-evolutionary feedbacks on ecosystem resilience under global change. I develop and test indicators for resilience (or early-warning signals) for critical transitions in complex systems, like ecological networks and socio-ecological systems. I work on a variety of levels of ecological organisation from populations, communities and ecosystems and a variety of systems -ecological, sociological , or climatic. My overall aim is to develop ways for measuring and understanding resilience in ecology and evolution to help design monitoring and decision-making tools for ecological management and conservation. You can find more info about my work in my personal webpage (link above).
