I am a biologist interested in the chemical communication systems of social insects. My research is currently focused on nestmate recognition in a species of harvester ant, Pogonomyrmex barbatus. I use a combination of techniques including: comparative genomics, experimental genetics, and behavioral and chemical ecology to identify proximate and ultimate factors that lead to the development and maintenance of social insect nestmate recognition systems.
