My CV here, my research there.                       

Host-symbiont interactions and insect communities provide ideal models for investigating diverse evolutionary and ecological processes. 

I started to investigate these topics during the course of my PhD. I tried to explain the observed variations in prevalence and penetrance of a Wolbachia infection in different butterfly populations. Since my interest for the understanding of the Dynamics, Ecology and Evolution of host-symbiont interactions has grown further. Currently I am investigating various symbiotic systems within insect food-web, thus to identify how those micro-organisms may influence insect communities.
