I am studying physiological and behavioural adaptations of organisms to their environmental constraints, both on an individual and a populational point of view. In particular, my research focus on 1) energy saving strategies of endotherms through huddling and 2) coping styles of individuals through personality traits, stress reaction and metabolism.
My main animal models are: emperor penguins, newborn rabbits, microcebes, elephant seals, dogs.
I am so enthusiastic to join the team and the project to study women's adaptations to such an extreme environment! This is such a great adventure.
