I aim to understand how and why biodiversity is distributed across the landscape. I use predictive modelling that draws from a range of subfields (macro-ecology, community ecology, biogeography and phylo-geography) and data sources (traits, phylogenies, experts). In addition to improving the predictions made for biodiversity, I am also interested in integrating these predictions into conservation planning to better understand which biodiversity is currently overlooked in conservation efforts.
