Nadiah is currently on a ten-week visit to Hisashi Ohtsuki’s lab at SOKENDAI (The Graduate University for Advanced Studies) in Japan. We have been collaborating with Hisashi over the past couple of years exploring questions related to the evolution of co-operation using a novel mathematical framework that accounts for higher-order genetic associations. This work resulted in a publication a few months ago. During Nadiah’s visit to Japan, she and Hisashi have been finalising work extending this mathematical framework to evolutionary games with many different strategies (rather than just two), and exploring new ideas related to homophilic group formation. This week she gave a presentation at SOKENDAI about our lab’s work on this and other topics.
