SCIENTIFIC INTERESTS AND GOALS:

I am especially interested in the integration of sensory information on a cellular and molecular level and how a change in the sensory input is reflected in the animal's behaviour. I hope to contribute to our understanding of how animals collect and process information about the environment.
