Thursday Morning Talk - Science of Intelligence (SCIoI): Alicia Burns

16.05.2024 | 10:00 - 11:00

Alicia Burns, “Shepherding Behaviour in Predator-Prey Interactions”

Alicia is a biologist with research interests spanning from basic behavioural biology to wildlife conservation. In particular, she looks at how individual variation in animals affects group-level functionality and collective behaviour, and how animal groups mediate the competing interests of individual members. The aim of this research is to ultimately understand the mechanisms driving social organisation, and to determine what makes some groups more “successful” than others in the face of changing social and asocial environments.

At SCIoI, Alicia is part of project 33, working with mathematicians, computer scientists, and biologists, to understand the mechanisms underlying predator-prey interactions and group hunting.
