I am a physicist interested in collective animal behavior and complex systems. What particularly fascinates me is the study of collective behavior, which is often associated with the concept of having a collective mind. Also, another thing that attracts me is the study of social animal behavior as complex systems, where the non-linear interaction among agents can lead to larger-scale phenomena; and so, to link biological systems with mathematical frameworks.
My work focuses on modeling the nematodes' collective behavior empirically studied. I develop an agent-based model to study the individual-level mechanisms driving the macroscopic dynamics, and to quantify the behavior differences across worm strains.
