WP_20140719_002Marion (The Ecologist): I am interested in predicting the future of human-modified tropical landscapes and their ecosystem services under projections of global environmental changes as well as the implications of these changes for wildlife and humans. I use biodiversity, biophysical structure and remote sensing data. See also my Tropical Canopies Project and Work webpage as well as my Research Group webpage.

Vero (The Mathematician): I focus on predicting biodiversity patterns from fragmented landscape history using dynamic and probabilistic relational models.  I also develop computing tools to analyse landscape configurations and their effect on species, and attempt to integrate advanced image and signal processing techniques into landscape ecology.

Martin (The Programmer): I am a PhD researcher investigating the spatial and temporal dynamics of land use/land cover (LULC) change to understand which aspects of it are the most important to determine biodversity outcomesi and minimize impacts in the future. I have a background in community ecology research with fieldwork being done in Poland and Eastern Africa. In my research I regularly employ remote-sensing and biodiversity-modelling techniques and I am always interested in new ways to guide conservation efforts.
