Global investigations on the sex roles evolution in shorebirds
Nolwenn is an early career postdoc researcher working under the supervision of Prof. Andras Liker in the University of Pannonia (Veszprém, Hungary). Her previous work includes a PhD in Antwerp (Belgium) where she focused on the evolution of intra-family interactions in canaries and blue tits and a master thesis studying behavioural syndromes of blue tits in Finland.
Now she works on understanding the demographic drivers of sex-role reversal and skewed sex ratio in a fascinating polyandrous and sex-role reversed shorebird: the pheasant-tailed Jacana in Taiwan. Her project combines field work (including behavioural observation, population monitoring and some morphological measurement), sex ratio analysis and comparative analysis.
