I am a dedicated field ornithologist with MSc training in evolutionary biology. Over the years I have been involved in a number of exciting bird projects ranging from breeding ecology to speciation. Nevertheless genetic basis of bird migration fascinates me the most.

How can a nucleotide sequence coordinate a complex, precisely timed journey from Arctic Chukotka to Tanzania in a juvenile song bird? In this PhD project we will use light level geolocators to track individual birds and comparative genomics approach to get closer to the answer.

Our primary model species is the willow warbler (Phylloscopus trochilus) which we study all across Eurasia with a special focus on a migratory divide in central Scandinavia.
