The Adami Lab

We use tools from evolutionary biology, systems biology, computer science and cognitive sciences to understand how simple rules give rise to complex systems and behaviors.

Our main areas of interest are:

  • Evolution of cooperation
  • The role of epistasis in adaptation
  • Evolution of intelligence and cognition, including learning and memory
  • Effects of phenotypic plasticity on evolution
  • Adaptive radiation and speciation
  • Evolution of drug resistance in HIV-1
  • Evolution of behavior in animals (e.g., foraging, mate selection, swarming)
  • Evolution of networks (protein, gene regulatory, neural, metabolic, social)
