I study echolocation in bats, how bats can navigate and forage in complete darkness by emitting high-frequency sound pulses and localising objects in their surroundings from the returning echoes. I am particularly interested in the interaction between echolocation and flight, how did echolocation and flight influence each other during evolution and what compromises and limitations do they impose on each other.
My PhD focused chiefly on emitter aspects, namely, using microphone arrays to estimate the intensity and directionality of echolocation signals from Neotropical phyllostomid bats and reveal how those signals are adapted to foraging habitat.
