Welcome to my website!

I am an island researcher and biogeographer. I study biodiversity changes on islands in the Anthropocene and compare them to island dynamics over longer time scales.

I am currently working at the Institute for Interdisciplinary Studies at the University of Amsterdam. Besides that I’m writing a popular science book about human-environment interactions on islands.

Last February I succesfully defended my PhD dissertation ‘Island Biogeography in the Anthropocene and Quaternary’ at the University of Lisbon.
