Annemarie Surlykke Professor Annemarie Surlykke focuses on sound production and echolocation in bats. Recently her focus has been on the intensity and directivity of the emitted sonar call and the implications for the way that bats perceive the world through sound as well as their acoustic interaction with prey.
Signe Brinklov Post-doc. Signe Brinkløv studies the bioacoustics, behavioral ecology and sensory biology of echolocators, using the very different echolocation systems of bats and birds as primary model systems. Her PhD focused chiefly on emitter aspects, namely, using microphone arrays to estimate the intensity and directionality of echolocation signals from Neotropical phyllostomid bats and reveal how those signals are adapted to foraging habitat.
Lasse Jakobsen Post-doc. Lasse Jakobsen studies the acoustic view of bats, their echolocation intensity, directionality, plasticity, and how body and environment constrains their biosonar.
Maria Wilson Post-doc. Maria Wilson.
Katrine Hulgard PhD-student Katrine Hulgard studies Echolocating bats: a unique model for studying the importance of attention for hearing.
Mads Nedergaard Olsen Master student Mads Nedergaard Olsen is writing his master thesis, working with adaptation of beam directionality in the bat Macrophyllum macrophyllum in two different environments.
Clement Cechetto Clement Cechetto is doing an intership where he will be working with the visual perception in bats.
Emil Guddal Larsen Nicolaj Lundberg Aaskoven Master students Emil Guddal Larsen and Nicolaj Lundberg Aaskoven studies memory behaviour during fouraging in a Vespertillionid bat Myotis daubentonii as a sideproject. They use differently shaped platforms to find out whether the bats rely primarily on spatial memory or object memory.
Cecilie Ourø Jensen Bachelor student Cecilie Ourø Jensen is writing her bachelor thesis studying the vision of the Noctule bat (Nyctalus noctula).
Randi Pedersen Bachelor student Randi Pedersen is responsible for feeding and caretaking of the bats.
