    Research Interest:
    Focus on researching behavior, physiology and genetic consequence of sociality and population dynamics in small rodents, in which the emphasis is placed on testing theories and generating hypotheses associated with kin and natural selection. Species studied include Mongolian gerbils, Brandt’s voles and Daurian pikas.
