Marta Celej

I studiedsc_0963d biology at Warsaw University of Life Sciences (SGGW, 2012-2015). My Bachelor thesis was on environmental factors affecting the abundance and distribution of Nightjars Caprimulgus europaeus in the Kryńszczak forest – Lublin Voivodeship (supervisor: Patryk Rowiński). I am currently a Masters student at the Faculty of Biology, University of Warsaw (supervisors: Tomasz Gortat – Department of Ecology, and Marta Szulkin – Centre of New Technologies).

My Masters thesis will focus on Great tit (Parus major) phenotypic variation in a gradient of urbanisation, as part of a larger project on urban evolutionary ecology started in the Wild Urban Evolution & Ecology Lab (Centre of New Technologies, University of Warsaw). I am also involved with the Sobibór Research Group, where I research species composition of the Sobibór Forests (SE Poland). From 2016 onwards I have also been analysing the relationship between age and habitat preferences of Nightjars in this forests.

My interests include ornithology and wildlife photography. I like to hang out in different ringing camps, walking in the Bieszczady Mountains and taking photos of wild nature.
