Research interests:

I'm an ornithologist interested primarily in the following topics:
(1) personality and social behaviour; 
(2) ecological role of plumage microorganisms; 
(3) functions of the uropygial gland; 
(4) feather structure, feather quality and moult; 
(5) avian ecophysiology; 
(6) migration (mostly in raptors, but not exclusively).
