I am interested in animal signal and communication strategies, and their ecological and evolutionary role in social/predatory interactions.
Specifically, cooperative job coordination in social insect groups is my primary research area. Foraging behavior of Japanese carpenter ants (Camponotus japonicus) is my current thesis topic.
Personally I find methodological development in natural science particularly rewarding, and wish to contribute to other people’s research by helping them create better procedure and environment.
