Research Interests / Specializations:
Genetics, behavior, and chemical ecology of social insects
The research in our lab focuses on ants and bees - how they communicate, why they behave the ways they do, their ecology, and their evolution. We work in both the field and the lab, studying chemical communication, behaviors, and the genetics of individuals, populations, and species.
