Research Interests

I am interested in the management of multiple ecosystem services in agricultural landscapes (such as pest regulation, soil conservation, biodiversity conservation, and food production). I am investigating these ecosystem services through literature review, meta-analysis, and spatial analysis, with a focus on minimizing conservation conflicts and maximizing agricultural sustainability.
