Research Interests

I am interested in insect ecology and community ecology, and the application of ecological theory for risk assessment and management of transgenic crops and conventional agricultural methods. I would like to address how GM crops may affect ecological functions and associated ecosystem services of the tropical agro ecosystems using two different approaches: ecological network analysis and functional biodiversity.
