Akcay Lab @ PennEcology, Evolution, and Social Dynamics
Welcome to the Akcay Lab
We are interested in a variety of topics in theoretical biology, all having to do with the evolution of complex biological and social organization. We work on how individuals with conflicting interests evolve to cooperate with each other, in contexts varying from plant-microbe mutualisms to cultural evolution.
The lab is affiliated with the Evolution Cluster, the Warren Center for Network and Data Sciences, MindCORE, and the Social and Cultural Evolution Working Group (SCEW) at Penn.
