Entomologist fascinated by the biodiversity, ecology, and life history of insects. I am interested in species diversity and interactions, with a focus on understanding ecosystem functioning and responses to environmental change and anthropogenic disturbance. I am currently working in the Multi Troph research unit studying the effects of tree biodiversity on cavity-nesting bee and wasp trophic interactions in a subtropical forest in China. I will generate and analyze multitrophic networks by combining morphological identification of species with DNA barcoding and metabarcoding approaches. My work will be linked to that of other sub-projects to understand the effects of tree diversity on large food webs.

My previous work focused on understanding whether roadside verges and powerline easements have the potential to be used for insect pollinator conservation in modified landscapes.
