Personal profile

Research interests

My main research interests are in the areas of self-organization in biological systems, collective animal behaviour and collective intelligence in group-living animals.

I focus in particular on problems of coordination of collective motion in animal groups (such as flocking and schooling phenomena) and in the collective formation of spatial structures (e.g. nest building in social insects).
