My research program is focused on understanding how groups of animals have evolved to coordinate their behavior as they interact with an unpredictable environment. Using mathematical models, agent-based simulation, remote sensing and computer vision, as well as lab and field experiments with honeybees and turtle ants, we explore how communication shapes collective behaviors such as group foraging, nest choice, and defense.
