My research focusses on understanding the ecological processes that determine the dynamics of biological populations. In this era of global climate change and large scale human induced habitat degradation, the pressure to respond adequately is stronger than ever. In my research I study individuals to understand adaptations to rapid environmental change in the wild, and its effect on population dynamics.
During this postdoc research, I am part of the research team of the TTW project 'Interactions between birds and offshore wind farms: drivers, consequences and tools for mitigation'. I particularly focus on the link of individual specialisation and population dynamics of lesser black-backed gulls.
