August 22, 2017: "How Migratory Birds Solve The Longitude Problem"



January 31, 2017: "Scope Season 3 Episode 143 SCIENCE AND NATURE"

Project: "Visual Guidance and Colission Avoidance in Birds"


Channel TEN came back for more. This time they more boradly covered our bioinspired approach to designing UAV's. As channel TEN's online portfolio is resticted to viewers in Australia the link will guide you to our PhD students youtube account, where he has published the segment for everybody to enjoy.



September 29, 2016: "Budgies provide crash course in flight safety"

Project: "Visual Guidance and Colission Avoidance in Birds"


UQ's media coverage on our PLoS ONE article 'Strategies for Pre-Emptive Mid-Air Collision Avoidance in Budgerigars' a collaboration between Researchers at QBI and QUT. The coverage later got picked up by SCIMEX



June 23, 2016: "Bird-brained flight provides clues for robotics"

Project: "Visual Guidance and Colission Avoidance in Birds"


UQ's media coverage on our two articles 'Anticipatory Manoeuvres in Bird Flight' in Scientific Reports and 'Budgerigar flight in a varying environment: flight at distinct speeds?' in Biology Letters



June 10, 2015: "Learning about the birds and the bees helps aid flight"

Project: "Visual Guidance and Colission Avoidance in Birds"


UQ's media coverage on our Scientific Reports article 'Direct Evidence for Vision-based Control of Flight Speed in Budgerigars'. The coverage later got picked up by PHYS.org



December 11, 2014: "Scope Season 3 Episode 039 BIRD SCIENCE"

Project: "Visual Guidance and Colission Avoidance in Birds"


Channel TEN's coverage of our work leading up to the publication of our Scientific report article Scientific Reports article 'Direct Evidence for Vision-based Control of Flight Speed in Budgerigars' It was an interesting challenge to formulate the topics of our research in such a way that it would be easily understood by a primarily younger audience. Sadly channel TEN's online portfolio is resticted to viewers in Australia.



November 5, 2014: "Bird brains may help drones fly and avoid crashing"

Project: "Visual Guidance and Colission Avoidance in Birds"


Here's something new. A non scientifc article written for layperson, published in 'The Conversation'. Our feeble attempt to explain our research to the general public. The article also received some coverage from PHYS.org



September 19, 2014: "Bird brains more precise than humans"

Project: "Visual Guidance and Colission Avoidance in Birds"


UQ's media coverage on our Frontiers in Zoology article 'Minding the gap: in-flight body awareness in birds'. The coverage later got picked up by The Tech Journal and Asian Scientist



June 12, 2014: "Budgie flights to inform autopilots"

Project: "Visual Guidance and Colission Avoidance in Birds"


UQ's media coverage for their own Youtube page.



December 9, 2013: "Is your Budgie left-handed?"

Project: "Visual Guidance and Colission Avoidance in Birds"


The ARC Centre of Excellence in Vision Science media coverage of our PLoS ONE article 'Behavioural Lateralization in Budgerigars Varies with the Task and the Individual'.



April 16, 2013:"Homing Pigeons Never Stop Learning Ways to Get Home"

Project: "NAV MAP"


Discover magazine's coverage of our Journal of Experimental Biology article 'Development of the navigational system in homing pigeons: increase in complexity of the navigational map'.
