I am a post-doctoral researcher working at the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute in Panama. My main research interests encompass the sensory and behavioral ecology of bats. In particular, I am fascinated by their acoustic sensory systems and how they use them to perceive their world. My work focuses on how bats use echolocation signals or prey-produced sound for prey finding, bat foraging behavior, and object perception through echolocation.
