I am mostly interested in consistent individual differences in behaviour (aka personality), social behaviour and stress physiology in an ecological but also in a human-animal interaction context. Recently, I am also investigating habitat selection processes and how those can lead to human-wildlife agricultural conflcits. To address my research questions, I study Asian elephants, reindeer and Barnacle geese. Lately, I'v become interested in historical and contemporary human attitudes towards wildlife along the urban-rural gradient. I also study how kin network characteristics are linked to early childhood surivial in a historical population of Finns.
