Dylan Thomas


The aim of my MSc-by-research project is to start to understand the mechanisms behind iridescence functioning (at least sometimes) as camouflage. Most of my data will come from traditional avian field experiments with artificial prey, though I also hope to make use of relatively new eye-tracking technology with human participants in my quest to explain the deceptive nature of iridescence.


In 2016, I started my undergraduate studies in the School of Biological Sciences at the University of Bristol, where I became particularly interested in animal behaviour and evolution. In September 2019 – after graduating with first-class honours in Zoology (BSc) – I joined CamoLab to start an MSc-by-research under the supervision of Professor Innes Cuthill and Dr Heather Whitney.
