Effects of Flow Speed on Garden Eels
Garden eels, a popular fish often seen in aquariums and during diving expeditions, are known for their unusual feeding habits. They remain partially buried in the sand while catching drifting plankton, making them an ideal subject for research on the interaction between flow and behavior.
Turbulence Effects on Reef Fish
Coral reef fish face turbulence in the ocean and we are studying how they cope with it in order to capture plankton. To do this, we are conducting flow measurements in the fish's natural habitat and behavioral studies in the laboratory.
Skills and Techniques
The interdisciplinary research involves measurement and analysis of flows and animal behavior. Here, I'm introducing skills and techniques used in the study.
