Postdoctoral research associate, Institute of Entomology, Czech Academy of Sciences

I am a community ecologist working on plant-insect interactions in the Tropics. My research focuses on tropical forest community ecology and conservation in sites across the Amazon and Guiana Shield seeking (mostly) to understand how herbivorous insect communities could promote tropical plant diversity. My research interests also include different aspects of arthropod ecology such as taxonomic and functional community composition, phenology, methodology, phylogenetics and conservation biology.
