Kevin Welzel
UCR Department of Entomology

Kevin Welzel, a graduate student in entomology at UC Riverside, was standing among Hollywood stars this summer at the red carpet premiere of Marvel’s Ant-Man. Welzel helped set up a giant, red formicarium, or ant house, in the shape of the movie title and answered questions red carpet attendees had about ants. “I talked to some folks for about 20 minutes because of their genuine interest in ant biology,” Welzel says.

 

When he is not consulting on blockbuster movies, Welzel conducts research in a lab studying the pheromones of Argentine ants. “I think it’s the beauty and diversity of insects is what keeps me captivated and interested in studying them,” he explains. “They are truly a work of art, the colors and their behaviors have been the inspiration for many artist throughout the ages. Ants are my favorite because they are just cool. They have a really fascinating social structure that allows us to relate better to them.”
