Light is a crucial cue for organisms on earth. One aim of my group's research is to understand how solar and lunar light are sensed by animal nervous systems and how this light information impacts on the animals' information processing and their endogenous clocks. A second area of my research is to unravel how oscillators with different period length work and how they can interact with each other in the same organism.
