Dr Faye Thompson
Associate Research Fellow


I am a behavioural ecologist with interests in the evolution of social behaviour and the role of conflict in cooperation. I am interested in how individual behaviour can have group and population level effects in animal societies. I use behavioural observations and experiments to try to understand the link between cooperation and conflict.
