My research interest lies in invasion science. While every aspect of this multidisciplinary field interests me, I currently focus on invasion risk assessments based on model predictions and related research questions: Can we make reliable predictions on where alien species are likely to become established? Which regions are facing high invasion risks, and are we able to identify spatio-temporal hotspots to direct targeted management actions to? I address questions such as these within the NichePac project, where I am quantifying the niche and spread dynamics of alien plant species that have been introduced to the Pacific Island region to eventually prepare spatio-temporal blacklists for the different sub-regions.
