Dr. Romain Libbrecht

I have a broad interest in understanding the organization and evolution of social life in insect societies. To this end, my work focuses on investigating division of labor in ants. I use different approaches to study the genetic, genomic, epigenetic, behavioral and physiological mechanisms involved in the alternative production of queens and workers, the division of labor among workers, and more generally the regulation of reproduction and behavior in several species of ants.
