Research Interests

My main research interests lie within the fields of animal behavior, sensory biology, and navigation, with a particular interest in animal migration. My work addresses fundamental questions within these disciplines, focusing on what sensory cues guide the movements of diverse fishes, and identifying where many elusive marine migrants travel using telemetry techniques.

Research and Activities

  • Satelite telemetry
  • Acoustic telemetry
  • Conventional tagging
  • Behavioral experiments
