My main research interest is the study of the impacts of global change on invertebrate communities. More specifically, I experimentally test the response of soil-dwelling springtails (Collembola) after heat shocks, tracking the population recovery of different Collembola species after such drastic disturbances. I also measure several traits that could be related to the species performances in the recovery, in order to better understand population dynamics in a changing world.
