Research interests

I am a behavioural ecologist and ornithologist interested in dispersal, life history strategies and migratory behaviour, with a passion for small passerine nestbox population studies.

Currently, I am collaborating with Lund University to investigate the costs and benefits of long-distance dispersal through experimental dispersal events. Moreover, I am studying whether between-population differences in the timing of the annual migratory cycle and overwintering locations are determined by genes or ontogeny, through the creation of a common garden.

Before starting work on migratory behaviour, my past research experiences and interests have revolved around sexual selection and social networks in passerines.
