Research & Publications

My recent research has been about trans-generational effects of pesticides and their effects on fitness, resistance, and stress tolerance of the Colorado Potato Beetle (Leptinotarsa decemlineata).You can find out more about my research on ResearchGate, link in pictures below.

Evolution in Action

Additionally, with the Evolution In Action -workshops we've been able to reach out and find new ways of educating both children and their teachers about evolutionary biology and its effects on biodiversity and ecological dynamics.You can find out more about the project via the linked pictures below!

Interests of the future

I'm open to new ideas and collaboration, so feel free to reach out! At the moment I see myself exploring further the effects of various anthropogenic stressors such as pesticide use and climate change on different insect species.
