Full Professor @Department of Ecology and Evolution, University of Lausanne;
As a full professor at the University of Lausanne, my main scientific interests are (1) the evolution, maintenance and adaptive function of variation in melanin-based coloration and (2) social interactions inside the family (parent-offspring conflict; sibling competition). Being an evolutionary ecologist, my research group uses a wide range of methods from different fields, such as behavioural ecology, genetics, quantitative genetics, population genetics/genomics, population dynamics, etc. I mainly use the cosmopolitan barn owl as a model organism. Based on ecological research performed in this species, we recently started to expand our interest into molecular evolution and biomedical research.
