Research

My research is focused on understanding neuron distribution in relation to visual requirements. We use various species, such as the tyrant flycatcher a predominantly insectivorous passerine birds that exhibits a plethora of stereotyped prey capture techniques, to better understand neuronal organization as it relates to vision.
