I am an open research coordinator whose expertise lies in the evolution of animal behaviour.
I am a fervent advocate of methods that increase the reliability, reproducibility, and overall credibility of science, and because of this I became the first reproducible research coordinator at the University of Oxford!
Now, as the LMU Open Science Center Coordinator, I coordinate and/or organise events or grassroots initiatives that promote open and reproducible research, I design and deliver lectures and workshops on open research practices, and I engage our community through various activities and communications. I also liaise with relevant local and national stakeholders to inform the design of training and policy.
During my past research, I have been particularly intrigued with individual variation, especially in the context of mate choice. For instance, I investigated how female individual sensory biases shape their mate choice decisions, and ultimately the diversity of phenotypes we observe. I am experienced with designing rigorous behavioral experiments, as well as with extracting data from long-term data sets collected on wild populations.
I also co-founded the Society for Open Reliable and Transparent Ecology and Evolutionary biology.
