Current position and address
(Institute of Avian Research)
I am an evolutionary ecologist with research skills in behavioural ecology, population genetics and immuno-ecology, interested in patterns and processes both at the individual and population level.
At the individual level, I am interested to understand the effect of genetic parameters on fitness components such as survival, reproductive success and immunological parameters. I am also interested in trade-offs between survival, reproduction and immunity and how environmental and stress parameters could modulate this trade-off. At the population level, I mainly focus on how the environment can explain the origin and the maintenance of population genetic variability and how the individuals can cope with them, for example in terms of mate choice strategies.
