My research deals with light production (via bioluminescence, fluorescence) and light manipulation (via structural coloration, pigmentation) in organisms, embracing the full range of scientific opportunities, from fundamental biochemical exploration and mechanistic description of biophotonic processes to potential application for biomedical, bioengineering and/or biotechnological applications. Changes of light production and/or coloration are also used as early proxy for health (ecotoxicology).
