Tunisian by blood and soul, I’m taking this unique opportunity miles away from home for the sake of knowledge and science. As part of both Guédot and Holland Labs, my research interests align to the following questions: How do insects interact with each other as a population, with their host plant, and with other organisms? How can we develop sustainable management strategies to ensure a balanced environment? I believe that the answers to these questions will be of critical for the scientific community and will inform current and future IPM-related studies.
As for fun, I’m a life enthusiast who enjoys life in its smallest details. I’m keen on photography, music, art, worldwide cuisines, exploring new places and new cultures. Plus, you already have a teammate for any adrenaline related-activities.
