I am interested in the manifold ways by which multi-directional communicative interactions in social networks affect the behavior of both signalers and receivers of information. Especially, between-individual variation in behavior ('personality'), and its evolutionary causes as well as its consequences for social dynamics in group-living animals are within my major research focus. I pursue an integrative (and collaborative) approach and combine concepts and methods from various biological disciplines ranging from ecology, evolution, and animal behavior to physiology, genetics, and genomics. I try to integrate field-based studies with analytical and experimental approaches in the laboratory.
