Who we are

Our main research interests are in communication and evolution in insects and fish. Namely, we address questions such as 1) what is the role of the acoustic signals within the multimodal communication system in model fish; 2) how well is the hearing pathway adapted to perceive the communication sounds; 3) how is sound production achieved ? 4) how is frequency discrimination achieved at the cicadas auditory organ and can the auditory pathway encode the fine structure of the calling song?
