Research

Behavioural Ecology and Forensic Entomology. My main research focus is long distance migration of butterflies and dragonflies, particularly flight tactics and navigation of the Monarch butterfly. I also maintain a website (Tactics and Vectors - http://www.erin.utoronto.ca/~w3gibo) on butterfly and dragonfly migration.
