Professor of Behavioural Ecology
I am generally interested in evolutionary questions, and social insects are an excellent model system. Currently my research interests can be grouped into four main themes:
- conflict and cooperation
- evolution of the dance language in the genus Apis, and
- decision-making in decentralised systems.
- Intergenomic conflict
I joined the University of Sydney in May 2001 after having been a postdoc at the University of Sheffield (UK). I collaborate extensively with people scattered around the globe and love doing field work.
