I'm interested in behavioural, evolutionary and population ecology, and especially the interaction between individual variation in life-history decisions, environmental variability and population processes. So I consider myself to be both an ecologist as well as evolutionary biologist; possibly I might best describe myself as an 'evolutionary demographer'. My interest in this topic is from a fundamental as well as an applied perspective (climate change ecology, conservation biology).
I am trained both as a field biologist and theoretical biologist. Therefore, in my research I take a combined approach of theoretical and empirical work, in which hypotheses are mathematically formalized which are put to the test using field experiments and data from decade-long population studies on birds.
Questions I work on include:
Finally, I have a special interest in developing better statistical methods to analyze complex datasets, as typically encountered in long-term studies on natural populations (see also my software page).
