Associate Professor, head of Sound, Communication and Behavior Group

My lab aims to understand how the brain controls vocal behavior at the exciting interface of physiology, physics and neuroscience using a combination of experimental and computational approaches. We developed novel experimental setups to study behavior of superfast muscle fibers in vitro and perfused vocal organs ex vivo. With the main focus on the songbird system we recently also adopted a comparative approach to identify underlying mechanisms of vocal motor control across the vertebrates.
