About me

Featured image

I am an enthusiastic behavioural, animal and evolutionary ecologist who seeks to uncover why animals of the same population differ tremendously and consistently in behaviour, and how such variation can help predicting adaptive capacities of wildlife and help designing the best possible conservation measures.

I’m currently employed as a lecturer in the MSc programs Ecology & Evolution and Behavioural and Cognitive Neurosciences at the University of Groningen (the Netherlands) and work on a range of topics: evolution of animal personality, local adaptation processes, dispersal ecology, life-history evolution and avian colouration.

I conduct most of my research on long-term monitored avian and fish populations performing large-scale experiments in the wild and semi-natural conditions, using tools from behavioural ecology and quantitative genetics.
