Projects per year
We study the behaviour, ecology and evolution of social insects. We are particularly interested in the role of communication and learning in individual and collective decision-making, different forms of division of labour and colony organisation.
Our main objectives are:
- To investigate how worker insects integrate multiple sources of information
- To understand variation among species in the degree of division of labour
- To understand the molecular basis of worker behaviour
