Personal profile

Personal profile

I am an ecologist with a particular interest for insect ecology, insect mediated ecosystem services (pollination and biological control of pests), their protection and enhancement in agricultural systems.

More broadly, I am drawn to research that provides applicable solutions to reconcile the needs of biodiversity conservation and those of an increasing human population in the face of future challenges, including climate change.
