Research interest

My research interest lies in evolutionary ecology of birds in a wide context. I use birds as model systems for investigating sensory ecology and communication, co-evolution and use of social information. My work involves both field experiments and comparative analyses.

Specific research interests include:

- Coevolutionary interactions between avian brood parasites and their hosts.

- The evolution of egg colour and patterning in birds.

- The evolution of nestling colour designs in birds.

- Animal colouration.

- Visual ecology of birds.

- Parent-offspring communication.

- Sexual selection and mate choice.

- Social information use in birds.

- Roller and crane conservation.

 

Opportunities

Potencial PhD students and post-docs are welcome to contact me, and suggestions regarding areas of work or projects are encouraged. These should normally be related to my key interest, but other ideas are welcome. Undergraduates looking for summer project work can contact me about possibilities.
