in this project, I investigate if sex and species differences in the mammal brain can be tied to sex differences in behaviour. The results this far indicate that behavioural differences between the sexes have had a large impact on the primate brain.
Sexual Size Dimorphism
My other research mainly focuses on the
use of phylogenetic comparative methods, especially investigating biological differences between the sexes.
During my post-doc I investigated what determines parasite diversity.
Mammal parasite records that we collected for this work are available at the Global Mammal Parasite Database.
If you are interested in doing a master's thesis you are most welcome to mail me for suggestions. I have several ideas that need to be investigated.
