Research Interests

I am interested in fish olfaction. I am particularly interested in the mechanism by which odorant molecules in the external environment reach the olfactory epithelium in the nasal cavity of cartilaginous fish (hagfish, sharks, rays and chimaeras). Investigating this mechanism involves first determining the three-dimensional anatomy of the olfactory region by microcomputed X-ray tomography (micro-CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).

Micro-CT and MRI scans are then converted into virtual models by image processing, and the virtual models are either subsequently converted into physical models for experimental fluid dynamics, or into a suitable format for computational fluid dynamics.

My research involves collaboration with many individuals and organisations around the world, including Simpleware, the Natural History Museum, the University of Glasgow, Penn Sate University and Guelph University.
