Recent Activities

What processes determine the species composition in nature that we observe? What mechanisms allow the coexistence of the species? To answer these questions, I combine multiple approaches including field sampling, data analysis, data synthesis, and simulations.

Message to Students

Community ecology may be a mess, but its fundamental question is quite simple. Let’s disentangle the background of ecosystems!
