Summary

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
