Current Research

Interested in insect evolution and different scales and patterns of biodiversity, especially in termites, dragonflies and flies. My current project is investigating the effects of rainfall differences on termite diversity in Northern Queensland, Australia. I'm interested in how historical events impacted this diversity, and turnover in termite communities over spatial distances. I am also looking at how the gut microbiome of termites changes with distance and life history of termites.
