I work in the Theoretical and Computational Ecology (TCE) research group and the Biogeography & Macroecology (BIOMAC) research group of the Institute for Biodiversity and Ecosystem Dynamics (IBED). The focusof our work is to quantify how the biotic and abiotic components of the Earth system vary across space and time, how they interact, and how responses of biodiversity to changing environmental conditions can be predicted.
Key activities are the collection and modeling of large biotic and abiotic datasets, analyses of satellite imagery, high resolution LiDAR point clouds and the development of innovative modeling techniques and measurement devices.
TCE is also responsible for courses teaching 'tools and techniques' in the bachelor of Future Planet Studies and the masters of Biology and Earth Sciences. We offer innovative courses such as: Modeling of Geo-ecological Systems, GIS and Remote Sensing Science, The Empirical Cycle and Analysis and Modelling Lab.
