Buck is passionate about all things ants and evolution. He started his career studying fire ant supergenes with Ken Ross at the University of Georgia, and then conducted his PhD with Daniel Kronauer at Rockefeller University, where he helped establish a genetic model organism -- the clonal raider ant -- by generating mutant lines to study the evolution of castes and pheromones. Now the Trible lab is combining natural history and cutting-edge molecular methods to understand how ants live and evolve.
