Ruth A Byrne, PhD; Medical University of Vienna, Austria.

For the last ten years, Dr. Byrne has studied cephalopods at the Konrad Lorenz Institute for Evolution and Cognition Research, universities in the USA and Israel, and beneath the pristine waters of the Caribbean. She first investigated behavioral lateralization and arm use in the Common Octopus, and subsequently the complex body pattern communication system of the Caribbean Reef Squid. Most recently, she has been working on human cell biology.
