Mag. Dr. Taborsky studied Biology at the Universities of Freiburg i. Br., Munich and Vienna, and accomplished her Masters and PhD theses at Vienna and Auckland (NZ). She completed her Ph.D. in Zoology at the University of Vienna in 1995. She has been working as postdoctoral researcher at the KLIVV, Vienna, and at the Department of Behavioural Ecology, University of Bern.
Her research interests include the evolution of size polymorphisms, the influence of early experience on life history strategies, mechanisms and adaptive significance of maternal effects, and sexual conflict over care. She combines experimental work, mainly on African cichlids, with theoretical modelling to investigate these topics.
