Research Interests

My research projects focus on modeling the potential distribution of species, developing new tools and methodologies in this field, and assessing impacts of global change on alpine vegetation.

More specifically, my PhD is trying to address the following issues

  1. Developing a GIS-based tool allowing to integrate plant dispersal limitations into species distribution models.
  2. Assessing the potential impact of global change on the distribution of alpine plants in mountain ranges acrossEurope.
  3. Testing methods of model-based sampling for the conservation of rare and endangered plant species.
