Dr. KAren Cheney, The university of Queensland
Dr. Karen Cheney, Research Fellow
Karen is interested in colour signalling, colour vision, mimicry and mutualism in the marine environment. Her work primarily focuses on fish and nudibranchs.
Naomi Green, PhD student
Naomi investigating the visual capabilities of fish, is interested in visual modelling of colour vision and predator psychology. Her primary fish model is the triggerfish.
Cedric van den Berg, PhD student
Cedric investigates the function of colour patterns in a number of animal systems including nudibranchs and fish. He is developing new ways to analyse colour patterns in the marine environment.
Martin Luehrmann, PhD student
Martin is based in QBI and is working on the visual ecology of apogonids (cardinal fish) investigating opsin gene expression, and relating differences to microhabitat preferences.
Holly Urquhart, Research Assistant
Holly investigates colour signalling in nudibranchs, and has been specifically looking at honest signalling in the bright and highly toxic Chromodoris spp.
Dr. Anne Winters
Anne conducted her PhD on the chemical ecology of nudibranchs investing the chemical and colour diversity found in these intruiging species.
