My research interests focus on the understanding of the dynamics of social interactions. I carry on experiments in controlled conditions on interactions between barn owl siblings Tyto alba, to tackle two aspects of this issue:
(1) how individuals perceive and memorize social interactions and
(2) how do they strategically invest in an interaction according to the gathered information.

The second component of my work is the understanding of animal behaviour in the light of life history strategies and sexual selection. I have set up several experimental works in the wild, on various model species. Using long-term data set, I have worked on habitat selection, mate choice and the evolution of multiple strategies.
