Scientist and science communicator interested in how animals perceive and interact with the world around. I work on animals such as ants, stick insects, praying mantises and spiders.
As a research fellow at the University of New England I am studying the interactions between ants, plants and stick insects. Ants collect tree seeds and stick insect eggs, and carry them into their nests. I want to understand what impact this has on the distribution patterns of plants and stick insects across Australia.
