Research interests (full description)

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