The underlying theme of my research focuses around social insects; their ecology and behaviour. I am currently working on invasive species.
The topic of my work broadly falls under the title 'Invasive species behaviour in response to novel climates’, with the aim of investigating specifically the microclimates these species inhabit
I am interested in both statistical programming, modelling, behavioural assays and field observations in order to address this question.
Currently I am investigating niche dynamics during invasive processes, using ants as model species. The aim of this is to facilitate mechanistic studies of what invasive species do that allow them to be so successful, investigating the interactions within the colony and their environment
