Hi! I'm a grad student studying the behavior and ecology of Octopus aculeatus for my dissertation. I've spent most of the past few years in the field (primarily Sulawesi, Indonesia) and have been lucky enough to spend many many hours following octopuses, including the many amazing animals in Lembeh's muck - hence "mucktopus." My professor, Roy Caldwell, has been involved in this forum for a while and has passed on to me a lot of wonderful information he's learned here. Now that I'm home writing, I finally have the means to join myself. In general, I'm interested in cephalopod behavior, ecology and evolution, especially pygmies, Indo-Pacific octos, and anything in muck.
