Ben Koger

Ben is a Ph.D. student in the Department of Collective Behaviour at the Max Planck Institute for Ornithology and the University of Konstanz. He is a biologist and electrical engineer interested in how animals’ physical and social environments affect their behavior – in particular the information they transmit and receive. He received his BSE in Electrical Engineering from Princeton University in 2016 where he wrote his thesis on the effects weighting and directedness have on the way social information spreads through graphs.
