Study species: Siberian rubythroat; Siberian/Stejnegeri's stonechat
Research topics: Geolocation tracking; Migration routes; Migratory connectivity; genetic migration
Institution location: University of Groningen
I am a 2nd-year PhD student in University of Groningen, the Netherlands, main supervisor is Barbara Helm. I work with Siberian rubythroat and Siberian/Stejnegeri's stonechats (race maurus, przewalski and stejnegeri) to study: 1. the impact of geographical barriers in western China (e.g., Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau) on the migration routes of passerines; 2. the genetic basis and genomic structural details associated with the migration pattern differences across different populations.
