Areas of Expertise:
Ants, functional genetics, pheromones, polyphenisms

Research Organisms:
Ants

 

Research Focus:

Ant genetics. I am currently working on developing a CRISPR protocol in the ant Cerapachys biroi, which I will use to study genes relevant to caste differentiation and chemical communication. Past projects include population genetics of fire ants and army ants, fire ant phermone analysis, and phylogenetics of ant evolution.
