Eirik Søvik

I’m an associate professor at Volda Universtiy College in the Department of Science and Mathematics. Previously, I was a postdoctoral researcher in the lab of Dr. Yehuda Ben-Shahar in the Department of Biology at Washington University in St. Louis. I completed my PhD in the lab of Dr. Andrew Barron in the Department of Biological Sciences at Macquarie University. My research interests focuses on the evolutionary history of nervous system complexity and how different animals are able to solve the same problems using different neural architectures and solutions.
