Project
Historical and Future Changes in Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services
I am particularly interested in understanding and predicting how human actions may affect biodiversity and ecosystem services. My research explores how the supply of ecosystem services has changed over the past 30 years, and develops models to estimate potential future changes to these services under an array of plausible scenarios. I am also working to improve our theoretical understanding of the relationships between biodiversity, ecosystem function, and ecosystem services, and to develop models that put these ideas into practice.
