Brain dynamics

Ant colonies

Robot swarms

The Collective Dynamics research group study the question of how system-level function and phenomena arise from the interplay of parts in a wide variety of systems including:

  • Biology
  • Engineering
  • Social sciences

The whole pipeline of insight-creation:

  • starting with data-analysis
  • agent-based modelling
  • mathematical modelling; and
  • model analysis using methods from:
    • dynamical systems theory
    • statistical physics; and
    • network science.
