Owen Corbett


Position: PhD Student

Project: Mechanisms and Evolution of Post-Reproductive Lifespan

Research Interests: Behavioural Ecology and Evolutionary Biology of tropical paper wasps.

I am interested in the evolutionary mechanisms underlying plasticity of behaviour and life history traits in simply eusocial wasp species, and the loss of plasticity at the individual level associated with the transition from simple to complex eusociality.
