His doctoral thesis was on an obscure species of ants that live only on an island in the South Pacific.
He spent six years alone, crawling on his hands and knees through a steamy rain forest.
His eyes focused so many hours on tiny things that he endured excruciating migraines.
His waking and sleeping world revolved around ants.
He has written over three hundred and read over a thousand papers devoted to these tiny creatures.
And yet….....he knows nothing about ants.
