Intrigued by the biological constrains and compromises that underly life, I joined the Ulrich’s group in 2021 in order to study the dependency between organized social-structures and disease-dynamics in ant colonies. In the past, I investigated the neural mechanism controlling locomotion in insects, and specifically the trade-offs among sensory-motor circuits of different hierarchies. Thereafter I explored locust swarms, experimenting and modeling the balances of behavioral stability and variability in collective motion.
