Research interests:

The interactions of animals with their environment brought me into the modelling of species distributions, and I want to continue this work for my PhD. I'm mainly interested in intraspecific variation in habitat use, and would like to push species distribution models into a temporal dimension. My aim is to link environmental dynamics to seasonal shifts in habitat use, or to life-history stages and see whether we can actually predict large-scale movements using these time-informed models.
