"Lars Chittka"

Lars Chittka studied Biology at the Universities of Goettingen and Berlin. He obtained his PhD at the Free University of Berlin in 1993, producing seminal work on the evolution of colour vision. After a postdoctoral fellowship in the US (Stony Brook) he came to Germany as a lecturer in 1997, and has been a faculty member at Queen Mary since 2002, working on insect sensory systems and cognition.
