Welcome to my research pages. I'm a social insect biologist working at Royal Holloway University of London. My research focuses on two major evolutionary questions: why does sociality evolve, and what new selection pressures does it place upon animal behaviour? My experimental models are ants, bees and wasps, and my research is empirical, based in the lab at Royal Holloway and at my field sites in South Texas.
