  • Research interests: Evolutionary ecology, in particular animal communication, animal signaling, and the biology of colors.
  • Why and to whom my research is important
    • I am trying to understand how colors of animals are produced and why. The evolutionary significance of coloration in animals is related to concealment, signaling and physiology. Studies on coloration also help to understand animal cognition and vision. Colors have important cultural significance from human skin coloration to uniforms and any artefacts.
