Research Interests

My research focuses on understanding how sensory perception drives the evolution of animal signals, which contributes to the striking diversity of traits observed across taxa. I use jumping spiders, which are small charismatic spiders that have excellent vision and impressive cognitive abilities, to answer broad evolutionary questions.
