Research Staff

  • Vladimir Ivan:
  • Michael Mangan:  Investigating the visual navigational strategies employed by desert ants which accurately relocate their nest after long foraging journeys; a feat made all the more amazing given their hostile environment, their (relatively) tiny brain, and low resolution vision. Understanding the mechanisms driving these behaviours is of interest to both biology and robotics communities
