I'm a behavioral and evolutionary ecologist. My research interests include animal coloration & patterns, signals and behavior with an emphasis on anti-predator adaptations. I experimentally test the function of signals and behavior based on natural observations from the field using integrative and interdisciplinary approaches. I currently work on visual signals, cognition and anti-predator behavior of jumping spiders (Salticidae) and find myself constantly mind-blown by their perceptual and cognitive abilities.
