Main Focus

I am particularly fascinated by group-living species and understanding how individuals respond and adapt to variation in their social and ecological environment. I have studied different aspects of these topics both, in the wild and in captivity, in systems like capybaras, yellow bellied marmots and zebra finches. Currently, I am focusing my research on understanding the effects of environmental perturbations on the stability of social relationships, group persistence and the potential influence on population dynamics.
