Research Interests

animals often share information with one another about resources
such as food or shelter. I am interested in information sharing
during recruitment in ants. I ask questions like: what kind of
information is shared between ants? Does transfer of information
differ when the quality of target is different? To answer these
questions, I use experiments to disentangle different possibilities,
and collaborate with engineers to develop novel tools. For example,
we use a robot with an ant dummy to lead other ants on preset paths,
to test what information the followers gather from following the dummy.
