My research focuses on how species interact with their environment when moving for different purposes and how responding to environmental conditions has shaped optimal movement strategies. I am particularly interested in approaching these questions with a focus on ontogeny and age differences. My study systems mostly include migratory soaring birds.
I am also interested in macro-ecology and global change, particularly understanding how global change will influence movement patterns and predicting how species will respond to such changes at various scales.
