I am broadly interested in biodiversity, plant communication and ecological networks. Exploring how life's complexity is maintained in changing environments and the role of networks in ecological systems have been a recurrent aim of my studies.
In particular, my core research is centred around cause-and-effect of networks of species interactions including plants, their neighbours and their mutualistic and antagonistic partners in real-world ecosystems. To answer to these questions, whenever possible, I integrate observations, models and experiments.
My current research focuses on the impact of global change drivers on biotic interactions and species coexistence.
I hope my research output helps society to better manage ecosystems and to design novel solutions for sustainable schemes.
