About me


I am a PhD student in evolutionary and behavioural ecology at the University of Oulu, Finland. As a kid, I got lucky to grow up in a farm, surrounded by animals –cats, dogs, horses, birds, insects,… and got to interact with them on a daily basis. I couldn’t help but wonder about what the world looks like for them. What would they feel? What would they think? While I am afraid these questions will still remain without a clear answer for a long time, we can study how and why behaviours evolved the way they are today. I made this my speciality. At the moment I focus on understanding what shapes the evolution of sexual behaviours, using glow-worms as a model.
