Research interests (full description)

I am interested in a variety of vision related topics. This includes: retinal neurobiology, visual camouflage, visual ecology, visual neuroethology, neural regeneration, and retinal prosthesis. Multidisciplinary approaches are undertaken in the lab to seek deep understanding of vision in the context of biology.
