(1) Proposed research: Offspring Gender Bias by Female Gouldian Finches

Wild female Gouldian finches have the ability to bias the gender ratio of offspring based on a number of factors including environmental (abundance, or lack, of food) and partner quality (mismatched head colour). I intend to undertake long-term research into the domesticated varieties of Gouldian finch here in Japan to determine whether gender bias ability is still present.

(2) Proposed research: Automated Species Classification of Finch Vocalisations Via Pattern Recognition

日本語で何と言うかな? 鳥の鳴き声による、音声信号処理を用いって、種類の自動識別システムの開発

I will attempt to automatically classify the vocalisations of various species of finch housed in a mixed aviary, using pattern recognition and classification techniques. This can be useful in a variety of situations when, as is usually the case, the aviary is unattended for the majority of the time:

The list of possible research topics is of course only limited by one's imagination.
