My research aims to understand how environmental factors and functional traits determine demographic variation, large-scale population dynamics and ecological niches of Proteaceae species in the Cape Floristic Region (CFR, South Africa). Supervised by: Prof. Frank M. Schurr; Prof. Karen J. Esler, Dr. Jörn Pagel and Dr. Jasper Slingsby. More information about the project (see link).
My current PhD research is based at the following institutions:
- Department of Conservation Ecology and Entomology, Stellenbosch University, South Africa.
- South African Environmental Observation Network, Cape Town, South Africa.
- Institute of Landscape and Plant Ecology, University of Hohenheim, Germany.
