Om mig

My research program is focussed on understanding the link between the visual world of animals and how the brain uses visual information to guide behaviour in different environments. To do this, I take a comparative approach that uses a combination of behavioural experiments and anatomical analyses using X-ray micro computed-tomography using bumblebees and dung beetles as primary model systems.

 

Latest preprint articles showing the micro-CT based method we have recently developed for visualising the visual world of insects:

Exploring the effect of size variation on bumblebee eyes: https://www.biorxiv.org/content/early/2018/07/30/380527

 

There are always opportunities for different types of projects in my lab, from Bachelor and Masters to PhD and postdoctoral levels. If you are interested, please contact me. Currently, I have an open position for a postdoctoral researcher (2-years full time), for details please see the following link or contact me for further discusssion
