Movement is one of the most fundamental processes of life: the individual survival of mobile organisms depends on their ability to reach resources and mating partners, escape predators, and switch between habitat patches or breeding and wintering grounds. Nevertheless, a generalized understanding of what determines variation in movement across species and environments is still lacking.

My research is focused on developing theory on the emergence of animal movement patterns, species-specific speeds, movement capacities and connectivity of habitat patches. I test these theories by synthesizing empirical movement data in global data-bases.

My main research questions are:

  • How can we predict encounter rates and eventually the strength of interactions between species in these novel communities?
  • How do movement capacities link habitat patches and how can we predict a species-specific ability to cope with landscape fragmentation?
