I am working for the laboratory of Entomology, Wageningen University & Research (WUR). Currently, I am taking part in multiple projects involving the study of between and among organisms interactions. The core of my responsibility revolves around the chemicals that are relevant in plant-insect interaction, plant fitness, insect fitness, and parasitism rate, to name a few. Our research projects involve both biotic and abiotic stress on the highlighted interaction. Some of our research focuses on the influence of:

  • Microbiomes
  • Drought
  • Waterlog
  • Herbivory
  • Parasitoids and hyperparasitoids
  • Insect courtship pheromones
  • Pollinators
  • Insect exuviae

On insect-plant interaction, insect-insect interaction, as well as above and below-ground organisms interactions.
