I'm a behavioural and evolutionary ecologist particularly interested in how variation is maintained. I'm a field ornithologist by training that spent a substantial amount of time studying dominance hierarchies during the PhD. I believe science is a cumulative process, and that evidence synthesis is essential to scientific progress. For my postdoctoral project, I conducted systematic reviews and meta-analyses to understand behavioural individualization as part of the SFB-TRR 212: NC³ project.
In my current position as Principal Investigator at the Department of Evolutionary Biology, I combine evidence synthesis, meta-science, and empirical studies to answer outstanding questions in ecology and evolution. I strongly support open science and work towards open, reliable, and transparent ecology and evolution. Always happy to share my thoughts about these topics in workshops and talks.
