Our research subjects are African weakly electric fish of the family Mormyridae that we breed in our laboratory.  My research interest in these animals is twofold:
  1. Multisensory integration, i.e. the interplay of their electrosenses, sight, and lateral line, in orientation, navigation, and communication.
  2. The developmental plasticity of structures and behaviors that affect their courtship displays.
