Izobrazba

  • Diplomirana biologinja, Univerza v Ljubljani, Slovenija (2002)
  • Doktorica znanosti, Univerza v Ljubljani, Slovenija (2009)

 

Raziskovalni interesi

  • Vedenjska biologija: osebnost pri živalih, spolno vedenje in vedenjska plastičnost
  • Evolucija: evolucija spolnega vedenja in velikostnega spolnega dimorfizma, kvantitativna genetika.
  • Ekologija: vedenje in življenjske strategije (»life-histories«) v ekologiji; bolj specifično na področju urbano spremenjenega okolja.
