We are most delighted that Philipp Bartel has just passed his PhD viva!

For his thesis, Philipp looked at spectral processing in zebrafish, from cones to brain circuits. Some of his work is already published, with much more to come!

Thank you to Andrew Stockman and Tom Collett for serving as examiners, and Daniel Osorio for chairing.
