Personal profile


I am a neuroethologist interested in understanding the neural basis of behaviour in arthropods. Most of my research focusses on insects, especially ants, bees and wasps. The miniature brain of insects processes and intergrates a range of information, some generated by the animal itself and some available in the environment. Their brain is small enough for us to map the neural ciruitry and identify the visual pathways involved in learning and memory, which are essential abilities for survivial.

A second aspect of my research aims to promote insect pollinators and develop methods and techniques to control pests and diseases of native insects.
