I’m interested in the linking of community ecology processes, such as species-interactions and dispersal, and how they influence metacommunity composition and diversity at regional scales. Currently, I focus on invasion and dispersal processes in river-like networks. Besides my interest in conceptual community ecology, I’m also a keen naturalist. My pleasures are–as Vladimir Nabokov said once–the most intense known to man: writing and butterfly hunting (with the camera).
