I am a quantitative ecologist with a broad fieldwork experience. I have received a rather classical broad biological education at Lomonosov Moscow State University in Russia. However, my bachelors, masters and PhD projects were dedicated to behavioural ecology of barnacle geese Branta leucopsis in the Russian Arctic. Thanks to my not very straightforward post-graduate career, I am experienced in switching between research areas and species.
I am curious about processes at any level, from an organism to ecosystem. And I particularly wonder, how animals use all kinds of information to keep up with ever changing environments. What happens when usually predictable seasonal cycles suddenly change their patterns? Which life-history strategies allow faster adaptations to these changes? How can life histories be adjusted? These are not just theoretical questions. Answering them is essential also for applied ecologists. And I find it important that fundamental research eventually facilitates efficient conservation.
