Our lab studies specialized sensory cells across organs and organisms to understand how cells detect, discriminate, and integrate various environmental signals to produce specific organismal responses. For example, we are studying electric field-sensing in sharks and skates and the peripheral sensory system in octopuses to expand our understanding of molecular mechanisms underlying sensation.
