My research focuses on plant ecology with an integrated historical view on how past human development might have shaped species traits over time. I am investigating the Neolithic Plant Invasion Hypothesis, which connects current patterns of plant invasions with the history of agropastoral development in Eurasia during the Neolithic. During my PhD, I plan to carry out several experiments involving plants from all the continents, so I do not have a particular geographical focus but rather aim at searching for a general pattern in plant performance.

Keywords: Agropastoralism, biological invasions, disturbance, Neolithic, plant ecology
