My primary focus is in the area of animal vision, looking at how and why animals see the world the way they do. I study the retina, visual pigments, colour vision, and polarization vision, using retinal wholemounts, microspectrophotometry, and behaviour.
My main models are fishes and cephalopods, and have included: salmon, anchovie, zebrafish, archerfish, stickleback, goldfish, cuttlefish, squid, and octopus.
Another area of my research has looked at understanding vision and behaviour with respect to improving aquaculture production. For this I have studied, salmon, cod, halibut, flounder, barramundi, and fat snook.
Short TV episode produced on my research on archerfish vision in which I was demonstrating the science.

Online radio interview.
I wrote a piece for a generalist magazine (Australasian Science). Sat on a panel of experts during an open discussion on challenges facing aquaculture industry.
