Dr Shannon Algar
Swarm intelligence is an emergent phenomena from a group of many simple agents (e.g. swarm of bees). Each individual is very limited in their ability but is a source of information to others.

Dr Algar is an applied mathematician interested in understanding complex systems and using our enhanced understanding to improve those systems. Her current work will use swarm intelligence to analyse the health and fitness of animals with the aim of improving their welfare.
