Dr Erik Postma
Senior Lecturer

Profile

I study the individual- and population-level causes and consequences of variation in the traits related to the most important events in an individual's life, including birth, mate choice, reproduction and death. To this end I use individual-based, long-term data for a range of species, including rodents and humans.
