Judging by this cover, this is going to be a great children's science book about vision: http://www.amazon.com/Eye-How-Animals-See-World/dp/0547959079

If it has a mantis shrimp, it's good enough for me.

Nice to see Hollywood taking some cues from nature; a tongue-replacing isopod in this case .  Sometimes Biology can be way more disturbing than our imaginations.

A word cloud of my thesis.  That looks about right.

Post-doc researcher working on the evolution of vision
Introduction
I am currently doing my post-doctoral research at Lund University in Sweden with Dan-Eric Nilsson.  For my PhD research, I studied the ultraviolet visual system of the mantis shrimp.  This beautiful and violent crustacean has the most sophisticated eye known to science.  

I am also afflicted by an overabundance of hobbies.  I write about arthropod science on my blog.  I am an amateur photographer, avid hiker, geocacher, fossil hunter, SCUBA diver, and play rugby for the local men's club.
