I am a terrestrial invertebrate ecologist and physiologist. I am especially interested in the adaptation and plasticity of invertebrates’ responses to climate change and how these responses differ between introduced and indigenous species. To answer these questions, I mainly work on soil systems that are key for terrestrial ecosystem functioning - using springtails (Collembola) as exemplars and adopting a multidisciplinary approach incorporating physiology, traditional taxonomy, DNA barcoding and ecology.
