Our lab seeks to understand how biological species perceive and interact with the physical world. Working at the interface between biological world and physical world, our lab mainly pursue research in two major areas: (I) The molecular mechanism of animal magnetoreception, migration and navigation; (II) Structural color and dynamic color change.
System as complicated as a living organism nevertheless follows the basic physical principles. Therefore, studying biological organisms with interdisciplinary techniques and perspectives, as what is going on in our lab, provides a unique angle to reveal the essence of physical phenomenon.
