I am fascinated by the worlds vast biodiversity and interested in what the drivers of biodiversity are, as well as how the myriad of organisms interact with each other. Furthermore, I am curious how human behaviors impact the prevailing interactions and how this affects the ecosystem functions and services.
I am currently conducting my masters project within the Bug-network, which is a global collaboration that aims to understand the interactions between plants, vertebrates and pathogenic fungi. Specifically, I am investigating European pollinator communities along a latitudinal and altitudinal gradient, and aspire to understand what the biotic or abiotic factors are that shape the distinct pollinator communities.
