I am an ecologist with a passion for migratory birds and the Arctic, with a special focus on the Russian Arctic. My main research focus is to study how climate warming impacts fitness of migrants, and whether they are capable to adjust timing decisions in a warming climate. To do so, I study animals and their food using long-term tracking and reproduction data, field experiments and models. I am interested in a wide range of species, including shorebirds (Red Knots, Grey Plovers, Turnstones), geese (Barnacle Geese, Brent Geese) and Arctic migratory birds in general.
Since April 2021 I work as a Veni laureate to find out whether Red Knots can adjust timing of migratory departure from the Wadden Sea, and whether they are limited by available food. I study this using experiments on captive birds in combination with tracking of wild birds.
Also, I am involved in a consortium where we study how climate warming impacts fitness and spatial distributions of a range of Arctic migratory bird species, in order to find out which species are more vulnerable.
Finally, I am still involved in other projects, including studies on the impacts of changing food phenology on chick growth, and on migration timing of Barnacle Geese.
