I have a research background in landscape ecology and conservation science, with a focus on pollinators in farmland landscapes. My ongoing project deals with urban biodiversity and ecosystem services. More specifically I study how structure and quality of the urban environment affect two important groups of pollinating insects: wild bees and hoverflies, and if any effects on pollinators translate into effects on the ecosystem service they provide in the form of pollination of garden crops and native plants. The results from this project will contribute to a scientific and evidence based foundation for the planning of (ecologically) sustainable cities. It will also provide information to help maintain both biodiversity of plants and pollinators, as well as an important ecosystem service, in urban environments.
