My research interests lie within eco-evolutionary biology of species interactions, especially host-symbiont interactions, symbiont-symbiont competition or facilitation, and host reproductive interactions. I aim at addressing several issues such as i) host adaptation to symbiont-induced reproductive manipulations; ii) the role played by symbionts in host speciation and reproductive interference; iii) how eco-evolutionary feedbacks resulting from the interplay between reproductive and competitive interactions may facilitate the evolution of reproductive barriers and drive species coexistence.
