Research overview

I am interested in using multi-disciplinary approaches to gain a greater understanding of the mechanisms that underlie complex patterns of animal behaviour. Currently this involves integrating behavioural, physiological, endocrine and neuroendocrine approaches using avian species in both the field and laboratory. I currently head up the Mechanisms of Behaviour Research Group - check out our website for more info:
