I am an ecologist with a passion for migratory birds and the Arctic. My main research focus is to study the ability of migrants to keep up with current Arctic climate warming. I study animals and their food using long-term tracking and reproduction data, field experiments and models.
Currently I am studying the effect of climate warming on body size and growth. I investigate this for a migratory shorebird, the Red Knot, which breeds on the Arctic tundra of the Taimyr Peninsula in Northern Russia. Here I follow Red Knot chicks to find out how growth is affected by varying climatic conditions and food availabillity.
Besides my work on Red Knots, I am investigating the effects of climate warming on migration timing and reproductive success for Arctic migratory birds in general.
