I am a biologist working at the Centre for Social Evolution at the Department of Biology of the University of Copenhagen in Denmark. My academic interests are in the evolution of interactions between organisms, particularly those between social insects and other organisms. The lycaenid butterflies are a particularly interesting group in this respect as they have interactions with ants which range from mutualism to parasitism.
