My name is Maria and I’m currently doing a M.Sc. in Behaviour, Evolution, Conservation at the University of Lausanne, Switzerland. I am interested in the behaviour of animals (a.k.a. ethology), particularly their cognition.
What do animals do and why? How to investigate their behaviour and mental abilities? What is the evolutionary history of a particular behavioural trait? Is there a psychological continuity between species? Why even be smart?…
I also like to talk about my own experiences, as well as schooling related to ethology. You can find more information on my main page.
Anyway, thanks for visiting – and welcome!
