Thomas Oudman is a behavioural ecologist at the Royal Netherlands Institute for Sea Research, and currently holds a 2-year Visiting Scholarship in the lab of Kevin Laland at the University of St Andrews, financed by the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research. Oudman works on the learning behaviour of migratory birds, focussing on how traditions help and hinder them in adjusting their flight schedules and destination as a response to e.g. climate change. Oudman received his PhD on Red Knots wintering at Banc d’Arguin, Mauritania, focussing on the factors that determine their foraging decisions.
