Research interests

My resaerch spans many aspects of visual ecology and animal vision. I am particularly interested in the impacts of light pollution on an aniaml's behaviour and new optiocal principles that animals exploit for visually guided behaviour. 

My lab has pioneered and uses several novel optical and behavioural techniques. My work adopts a broad intra- and inter-disciplinary approach, using a combination of physics based techniques (microspectrophotometry, laser tweezing, optical modelling and X-ray scattering) and behavioural studies (operant conditioning and novel optomotor techniques). Ultimately, I want to understand how visual information helps guide aspects of animal behaviour.
