I studied Animal Physiology, Plant Physiology and Biochemistry as part of my undergraduate degree at the University of Tübingen in Germany before conducting research for my Diploma (Masters equivalent) at the Max-Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics (Tübingen). Under the guidance of Nico Troje, Deszö Varju and Heinrich Bülthoff, I studied visual perception (animal and human) and was trained in various psychophysics methodologies. During my undergraduate degree, I spent 12 months at the University of Queensland where I was exposed to marine science. Combining my interests in visual systems and marine science I completed a PhD at the University of Queensland under the guidance of Justin Marshall and Jack Pettigrew working on ultraviolet vision of coral reef fishes. Since then I have held a number of postdoctoral positions at the University of Queensland, including a ARC Australian Postdoctoral Fellowship.
