I am an Omidyar Fellow at the Santa Fe Institute. Integrating theory, simulations, experiments and empirical data, I aim to uncover general principles of collective behaviour and to understand how these behaviours shape patterns and processes at the level of the ecosystem.

I received my PhD from Princeton University, supervised by Iain Couzin and Simon Levin in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology. Prior to that I obtained an M.Sc. in physics with the Complexity Science Group at the University of Calgary, under the supervision of Jörn Davidsen and Maya Paczuski.
