Hair Cells and Vortex Streets: Understanding How Fish Sense and Exploit Flow
 

"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."
