Main Focus

My main research interest is in animal sensory systems and animal behaviour, especially behavioural and sensory ecology. I am interested in how animals interact with other individuals of their own and other species,  with their environment and how these processes had been shaped by ecology and evolution. I mainly focus on auditory processing, auditory perception of the environment and auditory guided behaviour.

For more information, please see the webpage of the Acoustic and Functional Ecology Group.
