Introduction
I am a researcher interested in how complex biological systems emerge from multiple smaller units that interact with each other: how animals interact together to form flocks and shoals, how interactions between species support ecological communities and ecosystems, how thousands of social insects such as ants and termites coordinate their activities to build complex nests.
