Species Distribution Models, Various Spatial Data Quality in Species Distribution Models, Data Uncertainty in Publicly Shared Data, Remote Sensing, GIS

My research mainly focuses on the performance of species distribution models (SDMs) across various spatial scales and data quality. I am interested in the effect of positional uncertainty in species occurrences on SDMs predictive performance and explanatory power. Currently, I am analyzing the amount of positional uncertainty in publicly shared data (i.e., in GBIF). I am also interested in using remote sensing data from various sources and quality in ecological studies.

I earned my PhD in applied ecology at Czech University of Life Sciences in Prague (Czech Republic). Before starting at Yale, I spent some time at University of Florida and North Carolina State University.
