Area of scientific activity

Anthropogenic environmental impacts on biodiversity, namely, introduction of invasive species, climate change and effects of non-sustainable agricultural practices, using mainly insects as a model group. More recently, I am also interested in ecosystem services provided by insects, in citizen science and in the ecology of costal ecosystems.
