I am interested in the evolution of eyes, visual processing, attention, animal signaling, and aesthetic appreciation. I choose my study taxa according to which is best suited to questions I am interested in tackling. Taxa studied have ranged from jumping spiders to birds to humans. In recent years I have developed a particular interest in using mathematical modeling to test evolutionary hypotheses. I also enjoy leveraging my knowledge and skills in vision and computer programming to develop methodological solutions that can be used by others.
