Welcome to the Akcay lab website.

We are a theory group interested in the evolution of complex biological and social organization, and how individuals with conflicting interests evolve to cooperate with each other. We work on systems varying from plant-microbe mutualisms to animal and human behavior.

Check out the links to the left to learn more about our research interests, who we are, our publications, and opportunities for joining us. We are currently recruiting enthusiastic graduate students and postdocs (see Join us for more details).
