My research focuses on flow sensing by the lateral line systems in fishes. Mechanosensory hair cells are the primary receptors of the lateral line system and I am interested in how hair cells compensate for noisy environments and self-generated signals to detect relevant stimuli.
As part of the TEACRS Program, I am teaching a new course on The Extreme Life of the Sea in the fall of 2016 in the Honors College at UMass - Boston.
