Research topics
  • pollination ecology, DNA barcoding and metabarcoding, tropical ecology, conservation biology, Hymenoptera, Brachycera, soil meso and macrofauna, agroecology
Generally, my interests are within agroecology and entomology. More specifically, I am interested in pollination ecology, with a special focus on the analysis of plant-pollinator interactions and networks in agroecosystems with integrative approaches combining DNA metabarcoding and traditional methods. Additionally, I am also interested in the effect of fertilization on soil arthropods.
