I work on predation in vertebrates, using mostly theoretical models; my work is targeted at rodents (voles/lemmings) and the predators that feed upon them (raptors/mustelids/foxes).
My postdoc is part of Ecocycles [http://www.ecocycles-europe.org/], a European project that aims at identifying changes in small rodent dynamics, explaining them, and predicting their consequences. I am building mathematical/computational models explaining how predators react to these changes, and how changes in rodent populations indirectly affect alternative prey species, such as ground-nesting birds.
