In my group we use hoverflies to understand how the nervous system codes visual information. We use a range of techniques, such as electrophysiology of single neurons in the fly brain, quantitative behavior, free flight experiments, and field site measurements. Our neuroethological approach allows us to use behaviorally relevant stimuli in more controlled laboratory experiments.

Research Interests

My primary research interest in understanding the neural computations underlying motion vision in small brains. You can read more about my research by following the link to my homepage. I am currently looking for people to join my lab. If you are interested, contact me for an appointment.
