About

I am a terrestrial ecologist interested in understanding how dryland ecosystems function, and how they will respond to ongoing global environmental change. I use a wide variety of tools (field observations and experiments, laboratory work and modeling) and biotic communities (vascular plants, biological soil crusts and soil microorganisms) for my research, which is carried out at multiple spatial scales, from microcosm and single-site studies to global field projects with study sites located all over the world.
