My research explores when and why animals use social information. In particular I am intrigued by (1) what maintains reliability in signaling systems, (2) how information is transferred throughout a system from individual to collective intelligence and, (3) how these differ across different levels of cognitive or social complexity. I aim to address these questions using a combination of field and laboratory experiments, across a range of species.
