Research Interests

My primary interests involve fieldwork on behavior and natural history of tropical social wasps (Vespidae) and primitively social wasps (Eumenidae, Sphecidae, Pompilidae) -- the evolution of social behavior, kin selection, sexual selection, and phenotypic plasticity and evolutionary change (speciation, macroevolution).
