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
  • Conservation
  • Pollination ecology
  • Interaction networks
  • Island ecology


Msc in Terrestrial Ecology, Bachelor in Environmental Sciences


Research projects

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.
