Current projects: Effects of agricultural insecticides and endocrine disrupting chemicals on cognition and behaviour in migrating songbirds.

I am interested in how exposure to environmental contaminants at critical life stages (e.g. early development, migration) can alter fitness in birds. My research integrates laboratory and field approaches in avian toxicology to causally link exposure with effects that are relevant for wildlife populations.
