I am interested in the evolution of animal cognition, communication systems, and mate choice. I am particularly fascinated by the individual variation in cognitive abilities in birds and how these abilities impact their mating and reproductive success. For my dissertation, I conducted a comprehensive study of female mate choice in Budgerigars, focusing on the role of male cognitive abilities in this choice.
