Myself and Jaideep Joshi (first year PhD student in the lab) will be attending the workshop on Inclusive fitness and game theory at Arolla, Switzerland this week. It has an impressive list of invited speakers and other participants.
Jaideep will present how collective dynamics can facilitate conditions for cooperation and altruism. This is his first international conference and he has been awarded a travel grant from DST, Govt of India to cover his travel costs. Congratulations, and all the best for your talk!
After the workshop I will visit Laurent Keller‘s lab at University of Lausanne for a day. I then head to Montpeller in France to meet Sonia Kefi for about 4-5 days to complete an article we are writing together and also discuss further collaborative opportunities on studying critical transitions and early warning signals in ecological systems. Vasilis Dakos will join us from Spain.
Looks like its going to be exciting two weeks!
