Marie Curie Research fellow

My research interests lie at the intersection of vision, behavioral ecology, and evolution. I am currently a Marie SkÅ‚odowska-Curie Research Fellow working with Laura Kelley at University of Exeter’s Penryn Campus. Please visit my research website for more detailed, up to date information!

My research projects are all united by my interests in how organisms perceive their visual world, and how that perception influences the evolution of signaling behaviors, signal form, and interactions with con- and hetero-specifics. I work on a wide range of taxonomic groups, from cleaner shrimp to zebra finches. At Exeter, my research will focus on size perception and assessment of signal magnitude using swordtail fish.
