Sexual Conflict Over Mate Choice:

From Natural History to Evolutionary Insight

Thursday, February 25 at 4 PM

With Samuel S. Snow


Species evolution is happening all around us. Research on mating behavior and sexual selection continues to challenge and inform our understanding of the evolutionary process. In this talk, Yale doctoral candidate Sam Snow explores how evolutionary biologists translate inspiration from nature—such as mate choice among wild birds—into computer models that can lead to new insights and discoveries.

Samuel S. Snow is a Ph.D. candidate in the Yale Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, where his work integrates theoretical computer models, social network theory, and field observation into the development of new evolutionary theory.
