I'm a doctoral student pursuing a dual degree in Computer Science and Evolutionary Biology. I study the evolution of group dynamics such as altruism, cooperation, and communication within and between species. I use the digital evolution platform Avida for most of my experimentation. I work at the BEACON Center for the Study of Evolution in Action funded by the NSF.
