I am an ecological modeler and programmer with a focus on individual-based, spatially-explicit mechanistic modeling. In particular, I am interested in the formation and composition of species communities resulting from inter- and intraspecific interactions at the individual and population level. I am particularly interested in the application of ecological models in risk assessment and impact assessment, but also as predictive tools.
As a modeler, programmer and technician of the working group, I am involved in all projects at least partially and take care of the technical support and maintenance of the models, but I also develop algorithms for the automated analysis of models and model data.
