My research focuses on the mechnanisms of light- and dark-adaptation in the compound eyes of crustaceans. How fiddler crabs respond to extreme changes in light and dark across thier visual field is currently unknown. The animals feed on tropical mudflats with high sunlight intensities and strong reflected glare and are also active during the night. I use a variety of techniques including transmission electron microscopy, live imaging of the eye with ophlamoscopy and behavioural experiments, to investigate how the eye adapts to changes in light levels, and how quickly it can react.
