Dr Michelle L Hall completed her PhD at the Australian National University in 2001. She then moved to Cornell University in the USA for a postdoctoral position in the Lab of Ornithology (2002-2005), and during this time conducted research in Costa Rica.
From 2006-2010, she was a postdoctoral researcher with the Max Planck Institute for Ornithology, conducting research in the remote Kimberley region of northern Australia. In 2011, she commenced a research position at the University of Melbourne.Her research interests range broadly across ecology and evolution, with a focus on animal behaviour and communication strategies. She has particular strengths in ornithological research, using field observations and experiments, bioacoustic and molecular analyses, and statistical modelling to test hypotheses about animal behaviour.
