Roz Dakin, Principal Investigator (CV)
I am fascinated by animal behaviour, how it works, and how it evolves. I completed my BSc, MSc and PhD at Queen’s University, and was a postdoctoral fellow at UBC and the Smithsonian. I am passionate about data and quantitative biology.
Ilias Berberi – PhD Student
I am a PhD student researching the multivariate relationships in hummingbird flight behaviour. My research explores the influence of maximum flight performance on other aspects of flight, and whether trade-offs occur among flight behaviours. In addition to biology, I am interested in open data policies and sport science, and am a gearhead at heart.
Erin Jackson – MSc Student
I love birds (especially chickens!) and have a passion for creative writing. My research explores the impact of bird morphology on bird-window collisions, and whether particular flight-related traits contribute to species differences in collision vulnerability.
Sam Snow – Visiting Scholar
Sam is a PhD candidate visiting us from Yale University. He studies social evolution and reproductive strategies.
