Our lab group is interested in the behavior, sensory ecology, neuroethology, and conservation biology of animals, particularly those that live in the ocean. Research focuses include: (1) physiology and ecology of animals that migrate long distances; (2) navigational mechanisms of sea turtles, spiny lobsters, monarch butterflies, and salmon; (3) neuroethology and behavioral physiology of invertebrate animals; (4) use of the Earth’s magnetic field in animal navigation; (5) technoethology (the use of novel computer and electronic technology to study behavior).
