Understanding how marine animals perceive, communicate and interact with other individuals and their environment enhances our ability to preserve our reefs and informs novel technologies. 

Our research explores anatomical and functional neuroscience, gene control and behavioural ecology in marine crustaceans, cephalopods and fish.

This work has resulted in discoveries that preserve marine environments, and produce bio-inspired optical devices, including next-gen polarisation cameras, satellite sensors and data storage.
