What chemical elements make up a vertebrate and in what proportions? Working with theoretical, wildlife, and landscape ecologists, I studied the elemental composition of a small vertebrate and how it varies among individuals. Photo credit: Juliana Balluffi-Fry.
Baboons live in large group with complex social structures. I worked with behavioural and population ecologist to learn more about how these social groups work.
Carnivores live a high-risks, high-rewards life: they eat highly energetic food but it costs a lot of energy to hunt. I used a mathematical models to study how different-sized species respond to these challenges.
Herbivores often move large distance to follow plants blooming waves. In a team of international researchers, we studied the migrations of roe deers in the Eastern Alps.
The Western Alps natural recolonization by the wolf is a region-wide natural experiment. I studied how prey change their behavior once the predator returns after decades of absence.
