Pathikrit began his research of siphonophores, a group of marine organisms that have evolved as physiologically integrated colonies, by investigating the organisms’ advanced colony-level nervous system. He then attempted to establish a captive population of siphonophores in order to use previously inapplicable study techniques on the animals. Pathikrit’s project culminated in animation videos of his work, which will make siphonophore biology accessible to audiences beyond research and academia.
