Paula Hidalgo Rodríguez

Aspiring PhD Student

lthough Paula is not yet a registered and funded PhD student, she has started her PhD thesis on the Red-necked nightjar, as part of a ten-year project on this species. Not only is this bird highly cryptic during the day and active at night, she also aims to study the generally little-known period between leaving the nest and recruiting as a breeding adult. During her current contract as a student in training, she also collaborates with the Zebra finch project, testing whether Matching Habitat Choice can generate population divergence.
