Wen-Sung  is a Post Doctoral Research Fellow in the Marshall lab.

 

A passion for finding unseen marine creatures and my curiosity of their sensory world drove me on the way to do research. I am interested in cephalopod diversity and their sensory ecology. More specifically, I have been able to sample surface waters as well as investigating deep-sea habitats down to below 2,000 metres, both with cameras and nets. Aside from the excitement of working at sea, investigating the cephalopod visual system through laboratory work (e.g. microspectrophotometry, electroretinogram, magnetic resonance imaging), has uncovered new adaptation mechanisms of this soft-bodied creature. My current research is continuing to describe and explain the new retinal design elements, undertake more behavioural observations on both shallow and deep-living species large and small.
