Research Interests

My research broadly focuses on understanding how animals use their visual systems to obtain and process information when pursuing their behavioral goals. I use jumping spiders, which are small charismatic spiders that have excellent vision and impressive cognitive abilities, to answer broad evolutionary questions.
