We are an internationally leading vision research group that focuses on visually guided behaviour. We research how animal vision functions in a wide range of species - including crustaceans, insects, fish and cephalopods. A particular strength of the group is discovering new optical principles behind the ways animals manipulate light and understanding how and why vision and  animal optics have evolved.

Our research group consists of a mix of biologists, physicists and engineers. This allows us to successfully follow cross-disciplinary approaches in our research. A full list of current group members can be found here.
