Alan Tump

Postdoctoral researcher
mail: tump@mpib-berlin.mpg.de

Alan Novaes Tump works as a postdoctoral researcher at the SCIoI on the project “How Cognitive Mechanisms Shape Collective Dynamics”. He studies how individual decision making processes shape collective dynamics by combining empirical approaches such as cognitive modelling with agent-based simulations. Alan has a Master in Biology and did his PhD at the MPIB where he worked at the interface of behavioural ecology, cognitive science and collective behavior.

At SCIoI Alan works on Project 26, “How Cognitive Mechanisms Shape Collective Dynamics”.
