I am interested in functional mechanisms guiding animal movements in the wild. My research focus lies on sensory ecology, particularly animal navigation and orientation, and its underlying physiology. With bats as a model, I study e.g. magnetoreception of mammals. My goal is to gain insight into sensory systems and behavioural strategies of animals to understand their perception of the environment. Thereby, I aim to identify conservation needs for wildlife in the Anthropocene.
