I study ecologically relevant social behavior, from genes to the collective. I was just hired at Marquette University as an Assistant Professor in Biology. Previously, I was an NIH National Research Service Award Postdoctoral Fellow at Arizona State University, studying the behavioral genetics of cognition, and how that leads to differences in behavior at the collective. My PhD dissertation focused on how honey bees work together to cool their colony. In addition to the NIH, I have earned funding from the NSF and the USDA. I am also a cofounder of a startup company that builds tools to help beekeepers keep better honey bees.
