In general, I am interested in the ecology and evolution of plant mating, sexual, and pollination system. My PhD research focuses on different sex allocation strategies and their fitness consequence using Anemone alpina (hermaphroditic, perennial, and insect-pollinated) and Mercurialis annua (Dioecious, annual, and wind-pollinated). For instance, trade-offs between growth, survival, and reproduction among growing seasons, effects of herbivory on sex allocation, selection gradients imposed by pollinators and antagonists on floral traits, and fitness-gain curves of male and female sex function… etc.
