Research interests

My research interests are in biodiversity and conservation biology, including ecological genomics. In doing so, I use a suite of methods from monitoring to genomic approaches and study a wide array of organisms.

I focus on the exchange between research and application/outreach and the implementation of scientific results in conservation management and landscape planning, e.g., regarding the ecological infrastructure of Switzerland. I also supervise the large monitoring program of the nationally important habitats of Switzerland WBS and co-lead the new Synthesis Centre Biodiversity Conservation of the ETH domain.
