Meet the 2011 Science Fellows: Iain Couzin

We’ve just announced our second class of PopTech Science and Public Leadership Fellows, ten dynamic scientists who are spearheading research to change the world.

To learn more about this new crop of Fellows and their work, we posed one question to each of them: In one sentence, what impact do you hope to have through your work?

We’ll be highlighting one Fellow’s response per day for the next ten days. Stay tuned!


Collective organization is everywhere, as evident by migrating cells, swarming ants, flocking birds and our own human society; I hope to reveal the unifying features and principles of collective organization across these levels of biological organization.
