I am primarily interested in understanding the incredible division of labour we observe in ants. To this end, I have built collaborations with EPFL (Microbs) and EPFL (ISIC), utilising the benefits of the automated ant tracking systems developed at UNIL. Together, using novel technologies, we are investigating how the social architecture of ant colonies influences social behaviour, and also to consider what role physiology may have in division of labour.
