“We live in an era of significant environmental and climatic change. To understand how species might cope with different climates in the future, it is important to explore how they responded to rapid environmental change in the past.
I’m interested in how populations of different birds have reacted to major climate events tens of thousands of years ago. Modern surveys only cover recent time, so I use genetic data to calculate how species’ population sizes have changed since the last ice age. The patterns of these changes can then be used to inform our understanding of populations in a changing world.”
