This September two PhD students from the Ecology of Vision group, Ilse Daly and David Wilby, will be heading out to Sweden for the foremost workshop in the field of Visual Ecology. Organised by the prestigious Vision Group at Lund University, the Sensory Ecology course is renowned as an international forum for early career researchers in sensory biology to meet, present posters showcase their work and attend lectures from 28 internationally leading scientists over two weeks.
In addition to lectures on other sensory modalities, speakers on Visual Ecology include Lund's Dan-Eric Nilsson, Eric Warrant, Almut Kelber and Marie Dacke as well as Sönke Johnsen from Duke University. Ilse and David will also present posters on their PhD research.
To support this trip, David has been awarded a travel grant from the University of Bristol Alumni Foundation.
