Academic interests

I started as a Ph.D. student at CEES in August 2016. My project is aimed towards Colloquium 4 (“Integration of ecology and evolution”), and I will be supervised by Fabrice Eroukhmanoff and Kjetill Jakobsen. I did my Master’s at the Natural History Museum in Oslo, where I studied postcopulatory sexual selection in the bluethroat. I investigated possible correlations between paternity success and male secondary sexual characteristics, with a main focus on sperm traits. After that I worked as a research assistant for the sparrow group at CEES, where I did lab work, fieldwork and various other tasks. Under the supervision of Fabrice Eroukhmanoff, I also studied a population of reed warblers that have colonized a newly restored habitat in Malta. This turned out to be a very interesting population, and it became the starting point for my Ph.D. project.

In my Ph.D. project I will investigate genomic constraints on colonization and range shifts in the reed warbler.
