Martin Seltmann

I am a researcher at the University of Turku, Finland. Within NetResilience, I study how the structure of a child’s kin-network at birth can affect their early childhood survival, using data from a population of pre-industrial Finns.

I obtained my PhD from Åbo Akademi University in 2014. After that, I have been working as a postdoctoral researcher in the Myanmar Timber Elephant Project before joining NetResilience in 2022. My key research interests are evolutionary behavioural ecology, animal personality, social behaviour and networks, and stress physiology.

Currently, I am a researcher at the Natural Resources Institute Finland (LUKE) where I investigate habitat selection in a migrating grazing bird and human-wildlife conflicts.
