Principal investigator

I am broadly interested in the ecology and evolution of species interactions. For this, I have worked extensively on the spatial dynamics of the insect and pathogen community on the oak tree Quercus robur and the below- and aboveground food web surrounding the perennial herb Plantago lanceolata. I am currently expanding my research to the diseases and insects on semi-wild coffee in SW Ethiopia, and started to explore new study systems associated with Sweden’s perennial plants. Overall, I am broadly interested how ecological and evolutionary interactions between plants, insects and microbes play out in a spatial setting.
