Dr Rosie Clark


I graduated from the University of Bristol in 2011 with a BSc (with First Class Honours) in Biology. In my final year I worked with Professor Nigel Franks for my undergraduate project, looking at the egress behaviour of different densities of Temnothorax albipennis (rock ant) colonies when presented with an emergency situation in the nest. This research led me to become very interested in the similarities between movement in humans in crowded and/or stressed conditions and the collective movement of social insect colonies. Additionally, the decision-making behaviours of these colonies show fascinating similarities to populations of neurons in the brain. Following my interests in human and animal decision-making, I started a PhD in 2011 in the interdisiplinary "Decision-making in an unstable world" research group.
