My primary research interests are in the sensory
system functions of marine organisms. I use an integrative
approach to answer questions regarding sensory adaptations
in an ecological context. In particular, I focus on electrosensory
and visual capabilities of fishes and cephalopods and how
these senses are used to locate mates and prey and avoid predators,
and how they are involved in intraspecific communication and
