My main interest is in the diversity and ecological drivers of nematode communities, for which I sampled hundreds of coffee trees in southwestern Ethiopia, including both trees in natural forests and trees in plantations with lower shade levels.
Originally from Bath, England. I am in the master’s programme ‘Ecology and Biodiversity’. Currently, I am writing a thesis for my field experiment exploring the influence of oak-sapling’s differing spring phenology and shade levels upon seedling growth, oak powdery mildew … Read More
I just started my PhD. My main interest is in the relationship between climate, biodiversity, coffee diseases and smallholder farmer’s livelihood in southwestern Ethiopia.
I am working in the project “Climate, life-history and a multitrophic food web on oak” and my objective is to understand how spatial and temporal variation in climate affects the voltinism of a diverse community of herbivores and parasitoids on … Read More
I obtained my Master’s degree in Ecology and Biodiversity in 2017 at Stockholm University, and thereafter I started my PhD on plant-microbe-insect interactions. Specifically, my research focuses on oak trees and wood anemones, thereby investigating the diseases as well as … Read More
I am a PhD student co-supervised by Ayco Tack (my main supervisor is Kristoffer Hylander). I received a Master’s degree in Nematology (European Masters of Science in Nematology, an Erasmus Mundus Program) from Ghent University in 2014. Since then I … Read More
I study how insect communities build up in space and time. In my research, I am particularly interested in the role of plant phenology (bud burst and leaf senescence) in structuring insect communities. As my study system, I use the … Read More
In August 2015, I received my Master’s Degree in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology from Helsinki University. In 2016, I started my PhD, where I investigate the distribution, drivers and role of microbes within a diverse food web on the pedunculate … Read More

My research mainly focuses on microbial communities associated to plants. I am interested to understand their community structure, function, and interaction with their host and the environment. Previously, I studied the fungal communities of several agricultural crops, including olive, citrus, … Read More
