A lot of our work relies upon using novel technologies. We develop our own sensors and software for our work and then apply modelling methodologies and statistical fitting to better understand the data we gather.

We conduct a variety of field projects to investigate the evolution and development of sociality, heterogeneity, organisation and leadership in the wild
