I am currently doing my PhD at the University of Roehampton (London), though the bulk of my fieldwork is done in several islands of the Caribbean. I have a BSc in Biology and a MSc in Animal Ecology. But my heart belongs especifically to birds, which I have loved since I was very young. Avian ecology and conservation are my main research interests. I am especially interested in how environmental factors influence avian physiology and behaviour, thereby affecting traits and processes at the individual and population level. My ultimate aim is to contribute to the improvement of species and habitat conservation.
