I am a biologist with research experience and skills in different fields of science. In my research I address biological questions using research synthesis on data from model organisms and other systems. My work includes meta-analyses of maternal effects, aspects of ageing, evolution and differences between the sexes. I also contribute to methodological works addressing widespread issues in meta-analysis, such as non-independence, allometric scaling, heterogeneity, data sharing, reporting quality and research synthesis guidelines, leading to improved scientific practice. I often venture outside biological topics and data, for example, into biomedical, environmental, and even social sciences.
