Welcome to my personal site. I am a behavioural ecologist mainly interested in understanding individual variation in animals. My research focuses on Animal personality, its underlying mechanisms and how the environment influences individual life histories.

Thanks to a Leopoldina Postdoc fellowship I am currently investigating sensitive periods of personality development in wild cavies. I work at the Groningen Institute for Evolutionary Life Sciences and at the Department of Animal Behaviour at Bielefeld University.

You can find out more about me and my research on the next pages.
