Research interests

I am interested in the physiology of behaviour from an ecological perspective and its adaptability to a changing environment.
Although the behaviour and physiology of animals are adapted in relation to their life history stages, there is space for individual flexibility and responses to sudden challenges. This is essential since our world is constantly changing, unveiling new challenges in every context such as predation, social interactions, seasonality but also urbanisation or other anthropic modifications. Consequently, Individuals need to adjust their behaviour and their physiology and re-establish homeostasis.
