My main research focus is the physics of animal behavior. In particular, I aim to understand how behavior is organized on multiple scales, from fine scale muscle activations driven by neural activity to changes in navigation patterns modulated by the environment or internal states. I combine ideas from statistical mechanics, dynamical systems and information theory to build effective multi-scale descriptions of complex dynamics, inspired by measurement data of behaving animals.
