Personal profile

Research interests

My research relates to different aspects of floral displays and the effects these display components have on foraging pollinators. I am currently exploring the effects of floral spatial fragrance patterns on foraging Bumblebees and how these patterns affect foraging efficiency when simultaneously presented with signals from another sensory modality.
