About

Having completed an MSc studying the antiseptic behaviour of ants towards pathogen treated brood, I have now enrolled in the graduate school of IST Austria. Here I will carry out a PhD in the laboratory of Sylvia Cremer. This group studies the social immunity of ants and I plan to continue investigating various aspects of ant behaviour within the context of social immunity.
