Studying swarms of mussels

On February 18, I will give a talk at the Animal swarms workshop in Israel, talking about the importance of Darwinian adaptation and “Einsteinian” interactions in explaining the observed movement of “swarms” of mussels.



Applying Einstein’s theory of Brownian motion to animal movement

On the 5th of February, I gave a plenary lecture at the wintermeeting of the Dutch Ecological Society (the NAEM days) in Lunteren. My talk highlighted that Einstein’s theory of Brownian motion provides a interesting perspective on the processes underlying the movement of animals, highlighting that Brownian motion is an emergent property of the interactions between organisms, rather than a default model describing the innate movement of animals.
