Jasper Weinburd has been awarded an NSF Postdoctoral Fellowship. He will be receiving his Ph.D. degree this year under the direction of Prof. Arnd Scheel. His NSF postdoctoral research will study the collective behavior of swarms of foraging locusts. Classifying patterns of collective behavior provides insight into the biological mechanisms driving individual insects. Understanding this link may inspire efficient, low-cost methods for locust control and crop-loss mitigation. He is headed to Harvey Mudd College to work with Prof. Andrew Bernoff.
