Research

 

My research interests lie in Behavioural Ecology, where I have studied social interactions in gregarious mammals, bird migration and effects of environmental change and climate change on bird phenology. Currently, I am studying ecosystems in the sky, focusing on the migratory interactions, aeroecology and migratory behaviour of falcons and dragonflies.

Alongside research, I am also interested in conservation. I have extensive experience in conservation management, having worked in policy and practical management of protected areas and protected species for governmental institutions, and by contract by the European Commission DG Environment.

 

 

Teaching

 

COURSES AND LECTURES

2019: Lecturer and course assistant, University of Exeter, UK

As an associate fellow at University of Exeter I have taught in a practical course in bird-ringing and joined field courses to India and the Spanish Pyrenées, being involved in lectures, practical teaching and marking student reports.

2012-2016: Lecturer and course assistant, Stockholm University, Sweden.

During my PhD I was involved in teaching during several university courses in ethology, ornithology and ecology. I also ran a seminar and workshop on gender equality in science for doctoral students.
