Deborah M. Gordon

Professor of Biology, Stanford University

Professor of Biology, Stanford University. Investigates how ant colonies and other complex systems operate without central control and how they evolve; social networks of brief interactions regulate collective behaviour; in desert ants, evolution is favouring collective behaviour that conserves water, a sustainable strategy in the face of climate change. Examines analogies with neuroscience and robotics, and how natural systems such as ants can inspire innovation in engineered data systems ("Anternet").
