Research Interests


Joel studies the community of Drosophila and their parasitoids along altitudinal gradients in tropical rainforests in Australia and Papua New Guinea. His research focuses on the abiotic and biotic factors that influence this community and the effects of endosymbiotic bacteria, using DNA metabarcoding methods and experimental manipulations. When not in the field, Joel is mostly based in Jan Hrcek’s laboratory in the Czech Republic.
