I am an Uppsala University graduate student majoring in ecology and conservation. I’m now researching bacterial endosymbionts connected to herbivores and parasitoids in the oak food chain for my thesis.
The fascinating interplay between environmental factors, plants, soil, and soil fungal communities in forest ecosystems is the main subject of my scientific research. Currently, I am studying how the soil fungal communities respond to forest management in different Mediterranean forests.
I am a quantitative ecologist with broad interests in population and community ecology. I am particularly interested in how population and community dynamics play out over regional scales, in response to variation in environmental, phenotypic, and anthropogenic drivers. Currently, I … Read More
For my master thesis in Ecology and Biodiversity, I investigate how local and spatial factors influence insect and pathogen communities on urban trees, and if observed effects can be generalized among tree species. Specifically, I work with four urban tree … Read More
I started my PhD studies in 2022 at Stockholm University, and I am co-supervised by Ayco Tack (my main supervisor is Kristoffer Hylander). In my PhD research, I am interested to understand water quality/quantity, biodiversity in watercourses and water use … Read More
I am a PhD student supervised by Sileshi Nemomissa and Ayco Tack. I received a Master’s degree in Plant Biology and Biodiversity Management from Addis Ababa University in 2017. My areas of research interest include forest biodiversity conservation and management, … Read More
I am a master’s student in the Bolin Center’s Climate Science program. Previously, I did a bachelor’s degree in mathematics with computer science as an applied subject. I wrote my master thesis related to the climatic impact on coffee plants … Read More
I am currently a researcher at DEEP working on a collaborative project that aims to understand the relationship between climate, pathogens, and coffee yield in the Afromontane mountains in southwestern Ethiopia. My research focuses on investigating the spatiotemporal variability of … Read More
