He is professor of quantitative methods in sustainability science at Leuphana University in Lueneburg, Germany.

He aims in his research on creating a link between ecosystem functioning and ecosystem services research. Therefore, he has a strong methodological focus, and a disciplinary research background in community ecology, biodiversity and conservation biology.

He is searching for patterns along gradients and boundaries within ecosystems. He combines spatial data and knowledge throughout scales and organisms to generate a more sound understanding of the dynamics of our planet. He frequently works in rangelands, yet his work spans over other human dominated landscapes as well.

He tries to contribute by acquiring and processing spatial data and ecological expertise while providing methodological frameworks for inter- and transdisciplinary projects. He believes that we can only steer the planet towards a sustainable and resilient future by linking multiple disciplines through (pro-)active research, creating mutual learning in exchange with stakeholders and civil society.

Together with Daniel LANG, Henrik von Wehrden will talk and lead a workshop on:
