Nathalie is an Australian Research Council Fellow. Her work is concerned with the interactions between biodiversity and climate/climate change, previously focussing on forests in tropical South America and temperate Europe, and now including Australian forests and ecosystems. She is currently working on global-scale analyses of climate and human impacts on biodiversity, ecosystem function and processes, and species' and ecosystem vulnerability to climate change.
