Dr. Sophia KarpenkoPostdoc
Department of Collective Behavior
I am interested in how information travels through collectives and how those are able to reach decisions together, based on the nature of the information and its spread. Today I focus on questions related to individual and collective navigation, as well as information transfer and decision-making within groups, using a virtual reality system for freely moving fish.
My background is in behavioral neuroscience, acquired while studying phototaxis in zebrafish larvae during a PhD in the Laboratoire Jean Perrin at Sorbonne Université (Paris).
