Frederike Hanke

Postdoctoral fellow | PhD

When I started my biology studies at the University of Freiburg, Germany, my main interest was on zoology in general and behavioral biology in particular. For many years, I have been treading this specific path now studying and working in many research institutions in Germany, my home country, and abroad. I enjoyed working with many different and exciting species such as honeybees, corvids, fish, and bears. However, my main species are pinnipeds and cephalopods. In my research, I am focusing on their sensory systems, mainly on vision. I am interested in all kinds of aspects of vision including the adaptation of the visual system to the species-specific lifestyle and habitat up to motion and polarization vision, visual orientation and visual cognition as well as visual neuroanatomy. Currently I am working together with Almut Kelber on a research project on “Color vision in the common octopus” (funded by the German Science Foundation) that takes on the very long lasting debate of color vision in cephalopods and their seemingly color-blind camouflage.
