Ralf Kurvers is a behavioural biologist working on individual and collective decision-making in human and non-human animals. His work links information processing and decision making at the individual level, to the spread of information through social interactions, and emerging collective responses.

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