Anne has broad research interests in the field of behavioural, physiological and evolutionary ecology. As a student completing her BSc/MSc in the Netherlands Anne studied mating behaviour and the reproductive ecology of turtles, flatworms and fish in various countries.

Anne completed her PhD at the Australian National University (ANU), Canberra, in 2001. The project (‘Testosterone and life-history trade-offs in superb fairy wrens, Malurus cyaneus’) investigated whether trade-offs between investment in courtship behaviour and ornamentation, offspring care and immune activity might be regulated by testosterone.

A Lectureship (Invertebrate Zoology) at ANU was followed by an Alexander von Humboldt Foundation Research Fellow position at the Max Planck Research Centre for Ornithology, Seewiesen, Germany. While there she investigated sexual selection in blue tits with Prof. B. Kempenaers. From 2004-2011 Anne led a research group at the Max Planck Research Centre. Anne joined Monash University as a Senior Lecturer in 2011.
