I am interested in the hydrodynamics of swimming and flying animals. Using the computational fluid dynamics (CFD), I have investigated the flow around the pitching foil, self-propelling foil and multiple foils to show how swimming fish actively and/or passively controls the fluid.

My interests involve a broad range of research areas including behavior, cognition, evolution, and sociality. For my PhD, I studied how decision-making processes in individual cephalopods are shaped by social contexts, including with heterospecifics. Multispecific groups provide complex interaction scenarios where the existence of distinct species-specific hunting strategies entails distinguishing among social information sources differing in morphology, behavior, and cognition. In Konstanz, I will continue working with collective hunting groups of octopus and fish and analyze how group coordination and decision-making is shaped by individuals with markedly distinct movement patterns that have diverged long ago in the evolutionary tree of life.My interests involve a broad range of research areas including behavior,
