Welcome to the lab of Dr. Kaitlin Baudier. We are a comparative physiology and behavioral ecology lab using social insects as model systems to study social adaptations to environmental stressors. We are interested in how individual behavioral and physiological phenotypes scale to group strategies, and the adaptiveness of these strategies in different complex environments. Our lab has particular interest in macrophysiological patterns in the form and function of highly social species, particularly as related to the social dynamics of climate adaptation and competition.
