What does originate an animal’s behavior? How is animal behavior generated? We are trying to answer these questions using evolutionary, developmental, physiological, and dynamical systems tools and ideas.


Emergence of vocal communication
We study how vocal communication emerges from the intertwining of evolutionary, developmental, biomechanical, and physiological factors.

Emergence of locomotion
We develop theoretical frameworks to understand how locomotion emerges from the interaction of simple contractile components.

Information flow in networks
We develop mathematically rigorous statistical and computational methods to infer and interpret the interaction between different components of the nervous system at several temporal and spatial scales.

Non-Markovian processes
We study non-Markovian process to understand phase transition phenomena that emerge when remote past strongly affects the present.
