I am a PhD student at CU-Boulder. I am currently a research assistant, co-advised by Prof. Liz Bradley and Dr. Orit Peleg. My work is at the intersection of computer science, physics, and biology. I am interested in using data-driven computational modeling to study the underlying rules and patterns that govern emergent behavior in complex biological systems. My current focus is on collective honeybee behavior. I study the questions related to how local interactions among individuals can lead to successful patterns of self-regulation and problem-solving at the collective level.
Our research was recently featured in a piece, entitled “It takes a hive: community volunteers in honey bee research”, from the University of Colorado College of Engineering and Applied Science.
