Welcome to Claire Narraway

Welcome to Claire Narraway who joined BSP in December

I’m a biologist who’s past research has focussed on the evolution of social behaviour in honey bees, coordination of group behaviour in humans, sexual selection in drosophila, field assessment of fitness correlates in the azure damselfly, and learning in the common garden snail.  I’m particularly interested in how social groups overcome conflict and coordinate their actions, and enjoy applying the results of such research to novel problems, hence joining the Bartlett.  Whilst at the Bartlett, I will be examining the use of biological metaphors and analogies in the urban planning literature, particularly those relating to self-organisation.

Claire is based on the 5th floor of Central House if you'd like to come and say hello.
