Dr Jolyon Troscianko
Postdoctoral Research Fellow

Profile

I'm currently a postdoctoral research associate at Exeter University (Penryn campus), working on a BBSRC grant to Martin Stevens investigating how camouflage affects the survival of animals in the real world. I have a background in behavioural ecology and sensory ecology, and my research interests range from animal cognition and the evolutionary interplay between ecology and cognition, and more recently to animal vision and how sensory signals evolve to conceal prey species or mimic a host in the evolutionary arms race between host and parasite species.

Broad research specialisms:

  • Sensory ecology & evolution
  • Camouflage
  • Sensory modelling: I enjoy developing new technology and code to “see” through the visual systems of different animals.
  • Animal Behaviour & Learning
