Research Interests:

I am interested in pelagic camouflage and understanding the adaptations that organisms use to make themselves invisible when there is nothing to hide behind. How do deep-sea organisms absorb the light from bioluminescent predators? How does mirror-based camouflage function effectively in an asymmetrical light environment? What are the physical and biological factors that affect the types of camouflage organisms employ?
