The Biogeography & Macroecology lab

I am head of the Biogeography & Macroecology (BIOMAC) lab at the University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands, and scientific coordinator of the Virtual Laboratory Innovation Center (LW-VLIC) of LifeWatch-ERIC. My research group currently comprises permanent scientific staff, postdocs, data scientists and scientific developers. We are based at Sciencepark close to the city center of Amsterdam. A recent photo (June 2022) of the group (not all members present) is here:
