"The ability of animals to sense and navigate complex environments is unrivaled by even the most sophisticated human vehicles. Nowhere is this more challenging to understand than in the three-dimensional environment of water. I will describe advances my lab has made in understanding how fishes sense and negotiate unsteady flows, using both a comparative approach and zebrafish as a model system. Our hope is that by study nature’s designs we can reveal insights into some of the biggest challenges in engineering and robotics."
