Research Topic: My research interests revolve around ecological interactions, especially those related to ungulate herbivory. I am presently developing a study that aims at describing the structure of an ungulate-plant network in an open grassland savanna ecosystem. Through this study we will explore the trophic network structure including direct herbivore-plant interactions and indirect interactions between herbivore foraging on the same plant communities. I will also relate the network structure to functional traits of the species involved.
