Ravindra Palavalli Nettimi

PhD student in Ecological Neuroscience, Macquarie University

I am a PhD student in the Biological Sciences department at Macquarie University, Sydney. I am interested in how being tiny affects ants' behaviour, especially navigation and learning. My other interests include making videos, science outreach and communication, and teaching.
I did my Masters and Bachelors in Science from IISER Pune, India. I studied social wasp behaviour for my Masters thesis.
