Research interests

My research interest is to integrate animal physiology with evolutionary ecology. I am especially interested in the causes and consequences of variation in energy turnover rates and how this can shape individual life history. I study this in natural populations of blue tits, marsh tits, great tits, jackdaws, as well as in lab bred zebra finches. I look at both short and long term effects, as well as the physiological mechanisms connecting e.g. variation in energy turnover rate to fitness or individual strategies. Aside from this, I also have a general interest in evolutionary life history ecology.
