Marco Smolla


I am currently a final year PhD student in the Computational and Evolutionary Biology department at the University of Manchester.

My research focuses on the evolution of culture through social learning. I am using computational models as well as animal experiments to investigate favourable conditions and cognitive mechanisms involved in social learning.

I am also passionate about facilitating discussion between researchers of different scientific fields, as well as between scientist and non-scientists.
