Research interests

My research interests focus on questions within the field of evolutionary ecology with a special emphasis on development and functioning of immune system and patterns and fitness consequences of infection with haemoparasites. I address these issues in natural populations of birds both experimentally and observationally using the array of physiological tests and molecular approach. My other research interests include reproductive strategies in birds, especially the occurrence of extra-pair paternity and sex allocation patterns.
