I’m a PhD student working on plant-pollinator interactions in the Seychelles. I’m working on the effects of different perturbations in plant-pollinator communities and the consequent effects on network structure and pollination service. In addition, I am working with mathematical models to study the response of plant-pollinator network structure to the presence of competitive pollinators.


I’m interested in pollination ecology, ecological networks and conservation of plant-pollinator interactions and function on islands.


As a background, I was born in Venezuela but I did all of my education in Spain. Specifically, a Bachelor in Environmental Science and  Masters in Terrestrial Ecology.


I have been working with my supervisor Chris Kaiser-Bunbury since November 2017, first in the Darmstadt Technical University in Germany and now in the University of Exeter.
