Our brain is constantly confronted with sensory information, yet it manages to filter out relevant bits to produce appropriate behavior. Our lab is interested in the neural computations that allow brains to process sensory information and drive behavior.

We approach this problem by studying acoustic communication in insects using computational tools.

Currently, we’re focused on the following questions:
