I study how patterns of biodiversity shift in space and time with a focus on pollinators. I'm particularly interested in the influence of climate and land use changes.
Wild bees, pollination, environmental changes, biodiversity, modeling, conservation
How land use and climate changes affect biodiversity across time and space and how these changes are influenced by traits, phylogeny and interactions
Statistical techniques and tools for analyzing and modeling species distribution and diversity
Global patterns of insular wild bee diversity and distribution
The influence of environmental changes on wild bees as crop pollinators
