Jennifer Fewell is President’s Professor at Arizona State University, Tempe. She obtained her PhD at the University of Colorado, Bolder. Jennifer Fewell’s area of research is the behavioral ecology and evolution of social insects. Her work focuses on how intrinsic variation in task performance by individual workers affects colony patterns of division of labor. Additionally, she is examining the role of genotypic variation in colony task performance. Working with honey bees and Pogonomyrmex seed-harvester ants she examines flexibility in individual foraging decisions, as well as the role of foraging energetics and nutrient diversity in foraging strategy. Jennifer has published nearly 100 scienific papers on these topics.
