News stories and articles

Scientists are educators first and foremost and it is our responsibility to educate those around us when given an opportunity. Hence, I always try when I can to help out science writers who need expert advice on evolution, aging, ants and other social insects even when the story is not about my own work.  If I cannot be of direct help I might be able to point you in the right direction. Feel free to contact me.
