I have a broad interest in several domains of Ecology and Evolution. I did my master’s degree in small streams ecossystems in particular macroinvertebrates’ feeding behaviour and performance through changes in leaf litter quality.
In this group, I am responsible for the maintenance of spider mite populations and general technical support. Finally, I am also involved in experiments concerning the evolution of mating strategies, reproductive interference and host-parasite interactions in Tetranychus species.
