Research Interests

I am interested in various and interactive fields of study such as ecology, evolution and conservation. I particularly enjoy dealing with applied ecology and experimental research. My PhD project aims to study the effect of several ecological conditions on the reproductive success of food-deceptive orchids. Fundamentally, I am interested in identifying and delimiting how ecological factors such as the characteristics of the biotic environment of food-deceptive orchids can interact and play a role in their maintenance and evolution. In particular, I am investigating the effect of rewarding and deceptive plant species characteristics on pollinator learning and behaviour, and the feed-back that have pollinators on the reproductive success of deceptive plants.
