Collaborative Projects

Our main projects in collaboration with colleagues outside Dept. Biology, SDU, include:

CENTRE FOR BIOROBOTICS, CBR
a cross-disciplinary SDU-2020 five year grant, with John Hallam, MMI, SDU and Jakob Christensen-Dalsgaard, BI, SDU to advance the development of Biomimetic Robots and use them to experiment with acoustic communication and echolocation in bats, frogs and lizards.
MULTIMODAL SENSING IN THE NATURAL ENVIRONMENT
with Cindy Moss, Johns Hopkins, USA, Rachel Page, STRI, Panama, Yossi Yovel, Telaviv U. Israel and John Hallam, MMI, SDU, funded by HFSP Human Frontiers Science Project.
BIOSONARS in AIR and WATER
a project funded by the Danish Natural Research Science Council (FNU) to compare the the ways in which bats and toothed whales use their sonar, in collaboration with Magnus Wahlberg, Fjord & Baelt centre, Kerteminde, Denmark and Peter Madsen, Zoophysiology at the University of Aarhus, Denmark.
AUDITORY SCENE ANALYSIS IN BATS
an ongoing collaboration with Cindy Moss, University of Maryland, USA to investigate how bats perceive their auditory world through active adaptive control of their sonar behavior.
ChiRoPing
an EU-funded project aiming to investigate how four species of bats really use their sonar, and then imitate this accurately on a robotic base. This project is in collaboration with Experimental Ecology at Ulm University, Germany; the Active Perception lab at Antwerp University, Belgium; the Institute of Perception, Action and Behaviour at Edinburgh University, UK; as well as the engineers in MMMI here at SDU.
FENS
Network of European Neuroscience Schools.
SNAK
A graduate research school aiming to promote international-standard research in Sense organs, Nerve systems, Behaviour, and Communication within Denmark.
