Current Project 

 
The TEMPO project deals with biodiversity of urban brownfields (derelict land). I developed species distribution models for plant and insect species based on field data. To analyse the effects of the spatio-temporal landscape configuration on species occurrence and to find optimal management scenarios I built a landscape model, which projects the regression models to the landscape scale. Furthermore, I am working on a metapopulation model to explore the impact of landscape dynamics and age dependent habitat quality on metapopulation persistence.
