Master-Seminar Art is Ocean

Alex Jordan studies the complex social and collective systems of various animals from insects and spiders, to fish, and up to humans – the ways single individuals come together to form much larger groups, and the rules of interaction that govern how these groups behave. His research program encompasses field studies, molecular genetics, and neurobiological approaches to understand both the mechanisms and the outcomes of social interactions.

He is a Principal Investigator (Group Leader) at the Max Planck Institute Department of Collective Behaviour, an Associate Editor of The American Naturalist, and maintain a position as Senior Research Fellow at the University of Texas at Austin.
