Laura van Dijk

PhD student

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 herbivorous insects related to these plants. I am interested in the performance impacts of pathogens and herbivores when co-occurring on a host plant, as well as the chemical response of the plant to multiple attackers.
