Gasper Tkacik

was a postdoc in the lab who finished his PhD in Physics at Princeton University in 2007. He is studying how biological networks process information and has applied information theory to understand aspects of retinal processing, early morphogenesis in the fruit fly embryo, and signal transduction in cellular networks. His other research interests include the statistics of natural scenes, collective behaviors in biology, the dynamics of evolutionary adaptation and, recently, questions about the evolution of natural languages.  He is currently a professor and group leader at the Institute for Science and Technology, Austria.
