José Segovia Martín


I am the founder and principal investigator of SILAB.

My scientific work concerns the evolution of collective behaviour. I use mathematical and computational models, as well as experiments and data science, to study the interaction between cognition, behaviour and social organisation, with a perspective rooted in cultural evolution and complex systems.

I am currently a CNRS research associate at Complex Systems Institute of Paris Ile-de-France (ISC-PIF), where I also was postdoc researcher. Previously, I completed my PhD in Cognitive Science and Language at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. During my PhD I obtained relevant training in cultural evolutionary methods: a significant part of my research was developed during researchs visits to the Centre for Language Evolution (University of Edinburgh) and the Laland Lab (University of St.Andrews). I hold a MSc. in Science of Language, a BSc.(Hons)+MSc. in Biology and a Diploma in Economics.
