FACULTY AWARD: Couzin named to "Brilliant 10"

Popular Science magazine has named Iain Couzin, an assistant professor of ecology and evolutionary biology, one of its "Brilliant 10" in its ninth annual listing of top young scientists. Couzin, who studies collective motion and decision-making in animal groups, was cited in the cover story of the magazine's November issue for revealing "the rules of groups and patterns in the natural world." The group of scientists younger than 40 was lauded for "dreaming up solutions to some of the world's most vexing problems."
