I was awarded a Marie Skłodowska Curie grant!

I just won a Marie Skłodowska Curie grant for investigating the genetic and chemical components of host recognition by plant-ants, in Devil’s gardens.


I will work with Naomi Pierce and Axel Mithöfer, at Harvard Museum of Comparative Biology and at the Max Planck Institute for Chemical Ecology.


No doubt that many wonderful things will happen in the next three years, including a move to Boston, several field trips to Amazon and amazing discoveries about mutualisms.


Stay tuned!
