About me

I am a postdoctoral researcher interested in several research topics:

  • Plant-animal interactions and their potential to drive selection on plant traits

  • Biodiversity and ecosystem services provided by forest fragments in agricultural landscapes

  • Responses of plant populations to habitat loss and fragmentation

 

Research

My research at Stockholm University focuses on selection on reproductive traits in plants. I am specifically interested in understanding how antagonistic interactions and the context where they occur can mediate selection on flowering time. Using the perennial plant Gentiana pneumonanthe, its butterfly seed predator (Phengaris alcon), and the butterfly’s second host (Myrmica ants) as a study system, I want to link variation in selection to variation in interactions and in the environmental and community contexts.
