Research Profiles

My general research interests revolves around the study of the behaviour and chemical ecology of social insects. Specifically, I seek to understand pheromone communication and reproductive dominance in bees, ants and termites at the colony, individual and cellular levels. This I do using a wide range of techniques within the fields of analytical chemistry, behavioural and molecular ecology as well as mathematical biology.

Besides my main research interests, I am involved in analytical method development for various model systems (plants, insects, microbes), the use of chemotaxonomy as a complimentary taxonomic tool, as well as research into edible insects and their sustainable use.

I am a core member of the Social Insects Research Group. Click here for more information about the Social Insects Research Group.
