I am interested in understanding the biological principles that organize a social group and the functional outcomes of group living. Using primarily honeybees as a model system and doing experimental work at the level of both the individual and the social group, I am motivated by questions that have a strong theoretical foundation. Projects in my lab largely deal with questions in social behavior, cognition, nutrition, energetics, and life history patterns.
