My research concentrates on female mate choice and its role in sexual selection using small mammals as model species. In this context I have studied kin recognition and inbreeding avoidance, MHC polymorphism and MHC dependent mate choice in wild wood mice (Apodemus sylvaticus) and wild house mice (Mus musculus). My ongoing research focuses on ultrasonic courtship vocalizations in wild house mice.
