Fabian is interested in investigating biodiversity patterns in aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems in Switzerland. To identify underlying environmental factors shaping these diversity patterns, he uses a combination of range mapping and species distribution modelling. Furthermore, he is involved in planning and carrying out different courses about spatial modelling aimed for both bachelor and master students in environmental system sciences.
