I am a PhD candidate since october 2017 on the subject "Evolution of cooperation in collective adaptive systems".

I am interested in the evolution of reciprocal cooperation and its bootstrapping issue. I use evolutionary algorithms and robotic simulations to model the complex mapping between genotype and phenotype. I plan to show that even when reciprocal cooperation is the most adaptive behavior, it rarely emerges as an evolutionary path from pure defection to reciprocal cooperation may not exist. Then, I plan to identify which are the environmental or pre-existing cognitive features that ease the emergence of reciprocal cooperation.

For more details, you can read my PhD Project on the EDITE website.
