I’m a scientist with a strong focus on birds. My work covers three main areas: spatial ecology, population/landscape genetics, and niche modeling. The general goal is to bring the different fields together in synergy to better answer questions in the field of evolutionary and conservation biology. Especially in the latter field, I am particularly interested in communicating results not only to a greater scientific audience but also for consulting, planning and policy-making purposes.

I defended my PhD in May 2016 at the University of Bonn (Germany) and started over with my PostDoc later that year in October at the University of Ghent (Belgium) as an FWO Fellow.

Next to my research, I’m interested in bird watching, mountain biking, and hiking – and to write for different audiences of which this blog is my sub-mission to my everyday academic life.

cheers and happy reading,
