Main Research Interests

My PhD project concerns the short-term evolution of interspecific interactions in different environments, using spider-mites as model species. In particular, I address  how these interactions relate with plant defenses.
During my Msc thesis, I investigated cultural evolution in the context of mate choice copying in Drosophila melanogaster.
