Research Interests

I am broadly interested in insect-plant interactions and insect community ecology. Currently, I am exploring indirect effects in aphid communities, in particular parasitoid-mediated apparent competition and mutualism, and plant-mediated indirect interactions. I am also interested in the role of insect symbionts in this context.  I currently hold a Marie Curie Research Fellowship at Wageningen University, The Netherlands.
