I am interested in biology, ecology and evolution of invasive alien species (IAS), mainly invasive insects and nematodes. My studies focus on molecular mechanisms of adaptation and evolution of IAS, interspecific relationships between invasive and native species, microbes associated with IAS, and development of novel approaches for IAS control.
