I am a community ecologist and evolutionary ecologist working with ants as model system. My main research interests are: 1) the evolution of heat resistance in Cataglyphis desert ants, with a multi-focus approach that combines behavioural ecology, chemical ecology, morphology, phylogeography and physiology; 2) the importance of abiotic and biotic factors (e.g. temperature vs. competition) in the ant communities.
