The evolution of sociality represented one of the major transition points in biological history.  I am interested in understanding how evolutionary processes affect social systems and how sociality, in turn, affects the course of evolution.  My research focuses on the molecular basis underlying sociality, the nature of selection in social systems, the breeding biology of social animals, the process of self-organization in social groups, and the course of development in social species.
