I am interested in understanding life in subterranean ecosystems. My research group focuses on different aspects of taxonomics, ecology, ecotoxicology, physiology, parasitism and conservation. We work from the shallow subterranean habitats to the deep subsurface biosphere and its relation with surface. My research interest spans also in understanding parasite-host interactions, mostly linked with arthropod-fungi associations. Curating entomological collections, outreach and science communication is also an interesting part of my work.
