Welcome!

My research focuses on understanding how wild animals (primarily birds) cope with environmental change, as well as the cost:benefit aspect of life history trade-offs. I am particularly interested in steroid hormones, reproductive fitness and behaviour, and aim to integrate this information with captive breeding programmes to develop and protect self-sustaining wild populations.

I carried out my PhD with the Robert Lab at La Trobe University in Australia, and am now a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Georgia (USA) in the Navara Lab. For more information on my current research, please see the Projects page.
