ESR01 - Philip Ericsson
Since my undergraduate studies at the University of California, Santa Cruz, I have been interested in understanding how man-made impacts affect species fitness at different levels and how we can minimize these effects. Later, while looking at how differences in individual personality in the invasive round goby affect various aspects of life history during my MSc at Lund University, I became fascinated with the fields of behavioral ecology and animal personality. Now, I’m excited to combine these interests to understand how anthropogenic effects alter individual-level behavior and physiology and to apply these questions towards issues of conservation and wildlife management.
