Dr Bastian has over a decade experience in bioacoustic research which she combines with genetic approaches and experimental work. Her general research interest is the evolution of animals with a focus on evolution and phenotypic diversity/plasticity.

A special area of interest are the sensory abilities of animals as they provide the opportunity to understand the animals’ behavior and ecology as well as ultimate evolutionary processes. She is established in her discipline, publishes in top ranking journals and currently serves as a Consulting Editor for Animal Behaviour.
