Areas of Expertise:
Development, Evolution, Behavior, Symbioses, Entomology

Research Organisms:
Staphylinidae

 

Research Focus:

I study myrmecophilous rove beetles as a model for understanding the evolution and mechanistic basis of interspecies interactions. My aim is to develop certain species as laboratory models for deciphering the genetic and neurobiological basis of their symbioses with social insects.
