I am interested in understanding how animals interact with each other and with their environments, and how these interactions drive insect ecology and ecosystem services. My research uses computational tools for studying social behavior and uses bees as a primary model system, focusing on basic questions in their ecology and evolution and applied questions in how environmental change affects pollinators and the food systems they support. Below are some recent projects...


Social ecology of stress-sensitivity

Individuality and collective behavior

Animal flight in complex environments

Functional morphology of insect wings

Pesticides and bee health

Elevated CO2 and insect nutrition

Wind and landscape ecology of bees
