Research Interests:

For my PhD I worked on predator-prey relationships. In particular, the anti-predatory behaviour that prey display when foraging in a patch and have to deal with an approaching predator. This situation is qualitatively described by Ydenberg & Dill’s (1986) model, but there are no qualitative studies regarding the actual shape of the curves predicted by this model. For my PhD project, I worked on estimating¬† the shape of the curves of this model, which would validate (or reject) all the research done thus far using this model.
