The unifying theme in our research is the role of space in the biology of individuals, populations, and communities. Our work includes both basic research and applications to conservation and management.

The aim of our research is to integrate different levels of organisation from that of the gene, through single genomes, societies and populations to that of the species, with social inscts as model organisms.

Our research seeks to understand how animals acquire and use information, how this influences their fitness, and the evolution of others in their environments.

I attempt to link conservational work with evolutionary questions to both determine the processes that have resulted in present local adaptations and predict the consequences of environmental change.

Our research focuses on behavioural approaches to various ecological and evolutionary phenomena with applications to conservation biology and sustainable management of natural populations.

The goal of the research project is to develop the epidemiological theory of pathogen eco-evolutionary dynamics where the pathogen is embedded within a food web such that the organism face e.g. the predators, parasites, and resource competition.

In order to survive, free-living bacteria need to defend against viral and protozoan enemies, which are one of the most common causes of bacterial mortality and strong drivers of bacterial evolution. The evolution of defenses can also have correlated consequences on bacterial virulence. It is however not clear weather the antagonistic interactions generally lead to increase or decrease in bacterial virulence.

We use quantitative genetic and genomic tools to understand the genetic basis of complex traits in wild populations. We are specifically interested in how organisms adapt to changing environmental conditions and the mechanisms by which they do so.

We study molecular systematics, social parasitism, speciation, phylogeography, and biogeography of several Holarctic ant groups.
