Congratulations Dr. Mingyi!

We are most delighted that Mingyi Zhou has just passed her PhD viva!

For her thesis, Mingyi investigated spectral processing in zebrafish retinal ganglion cells.

Thank you to Rob Hindges and Corne Kros for serving as examiners, and Leon Lagnado for chairing!

New lab members

We are pleased to welcome to Eira and Carola to the lab.

Eira is part of the new Leverhulme DTC on biomimetic AI at Sussex. She will be doing her PhD on individual differences in zebrafish vision. Her project is co-supervised by Jenny Bosten from Sussex Psychology.

Carola is a new MarieCurie Fellow, with additional support from the Leverhulme Trust. She will work on “Colour vision in the dark“, using the frog visual system as a model.
