Safeguard is pleased to present its new post-doctoral researcher! Willem Proesmans is a biologist who obtained his PhD at Ghent University
on the role of small forest fragments for wild pollinators in intensive agricultural landscapes. After that, he started a postdoc at the French National Research Institute for Agriculture, Food and the Environment (INRAe
) in Dijon, studying how plant-pollinator interactions affect pathogen transmission between pollinator species. His main interests are ecology, diversity and taxonomy of bees. Currently, he mainly works on community ecology and species interactions, with a special emphasis on wild pollinators and plant-pollinator networks.
We’re happy to have you with us, Willem! Good luck on your Safeguard journey!
