Research Interests

My research interests are broad within the field of wildlife ecology encompassing behavioral ecology and population dynamics. Currently, I am investigating the reproductive ecology of Alpine ibex (Capra ibex), a mountain ungulate exhibiting a very 'slow' life-history strategy. By promoting our understanding of ibex ecology, the results are also thought to provide important data necessary to optimize management plans for this species in Switzerland.
