About me

I am a postdoctoral researcher (coadvised by Bert Hölldobler and Stephen Pratt) at Arizona State University.


My research mainly focuses on how colony-level intelligence emerges from large numbers of relatively ignorant ants through simple behavioral rules and communication pathways. I adopt theories developed in psychology and economics for humans to explore the emergence of collective decision-making in ants.
