My research focuses on the role of different sensory systems required for animal navigation.
My current projects address the questions how migratory songbirds can use magnetic and olfactory senses for their finding geographic position relative to destinations (i.e. perform navigation) and if the use of these senses depend on geographic scale. Besides that, I study how anthropogenic electromagnetic fields can disturb avian magnetic compass sense in freely behaving birds in the wild. My main model systems are birds: both migratory songbirds and homing pigeons. I am also interested in development and application of new telemetry and bio-sensing methods to study different aspects of animal migration.
