Research Interest

Sensory biology and neuroethology with a primary focus on vertebrate hair cell systems, spatial orientation and fish behavior. Neurophysiological, behavioral, anatomical and computer modeling techniques are applied to questions of how fish behavior is guided by non-visual cues, primarily acoustic and hydrodynamic. Current research efforts focus on how fish use their auditory and lateral line systems to acquire spatial information about the geometric configuration of their surroundings and to find discrete spatial goals - both stationary (e.g. obstacles) and vibratory (e.g. prey).
