Dispersal through fitness landscapes in a social bird: from individuals to populations

Research interests:

Most of my research uses mathematical tools to shed light on a few fundamental questions in ecology: - Can we construct techniques to help predict the effects of future environmental change on the ability of animal populations to survive? - How can we infer the nature of animal interaction mechanisms, both with each other and their environment, from movement data? - How do complex systems of animal movements and interactions give rise to emergent population-level patterns?
