I am interested in the effect of microbiota on its host's social behaviour, especially in the context of social insects.

 

My M.Sc research focused on reproduction and dispersal plasticity of Lamium amplexicaule.

I studied these topics using indoor growth chambers and an indoor Messor ebeninus nest experimental systems.
