I’m a PhD student working on animal-plant interactions. I’m interested in understanding how plant-pollinator interactions are build and the changes they suffer to adapt to different perturbations. In addition, I’m interested in ecological function, network structure and conservation of plant-pollinator interactions on island ecosystems.
Broad research specialisms
- Plant-pollinator interactions

Project Title: “Predicting the effects of exotic species on network structure and the consequences for ecosystem function”
Supervisors: Christopher Kaiser-Bunbury, Juliet Osborne, Gita Benadi, Jochen Fründ, Benjamin Mauroy
Funding Body: DFG
Project Description: For this project we will combine large-scale field experiments and ecological modelling to study the effects of exotic species and habitat restoration on plant-pollinator communities on Mahé Island in the Seychelles.
