My research interests are in the interdisciplinary area between neuroscience and ethology. I want to understand how the nervous system translates stimuli into behavioural activity. Currently, my main topic is the sensorimotor integration of multimodal cues for navigation. More narrowly I study computational mechanisms of path planning and navigation in humans.
