UC connections We are part of the Biological Sciences’ faculty cluster in Sensory Biology, Behavior, and Evolution. Also, we are embedded within the research theme of Action and Perception in the faculty of Psychology. Finally, we have strong ties with faculty with overlapping interests in the school of Engineering. As such, we are part of a highly interactive community of researchers at UC. Also, have a look at the list of collaborators. I would be happy to discuss multidisciplinary projects drawing on the strengths of multiple labs.
Dr Katie Kalafut is an an animal behaviorist working with the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden. Katie and I are collaborating on using technology for captive animal welfare.
Dr Nate Morehouse is an evolutionary biologist studying the visual systems of spiders and other invertebrates. Projects spanning both Nate and my interest include jumping spider-inspired vision and cognition.
Dr Stephanie Rollmann studies the genetic and neural basis of olfactory behavior, using the famous fruit fly as a model. Stephanie heads the BME program.
