I am an ecologist interested in using morphology and physiology to understand the distribution of biological diversity, particularly that of the ants. I aim to use basic ecological principles to explain broad spatial and temporal patterns of biodiversity that have relevance for the continued existence of Life on Earth. My research mantra is to attempt to find general answers to big questions without losing sight or touch of the natural world.
My research uses a mix of local and global perspectives, has incorporated observational, experimental and computational approaches. I often use ants as an easily sampled and interesting study taxon and mountain environments as useful sources of environmental variation.
