I am interested in the evolution of social behaviours in Hymenoptera. Ants, for instance, display a wide range of social organizations. My research works focus on the selective pressures responsible for the evolution of such different lifestyles and reproductive strategies.
My present research work concerns the proximal mechanisms underlying social organization in ants.
