Welcome to the Molecular Evolution and Sociobiology Group

The principal goal of my research is to determine the genetic, genomic and epigenetic basis of complex traits and understand how these traits and its underlying genetic architecture evolves.
We are using social and solitary insects to understand the genetic basis and regulation of adaptive traits across multiple organizational levels from gene to colony and time frames from seconds (e.g. courtship behavior) to millions of years (e.g. species differences).
