Owen Martin received his Bachelor's of Science in CS from Tufts University and started his PhD in 2020. He spent several years working as a software engineer in test for Hitachi Vantara in Boston and NetApp Solidfire here in Boulder before pivoting to academia to ask his own questions. Owen researches collective behavior and swarm computation with the Peleg lab. His research interests span synchronized North American fireflies; group cognition in bees; and social behavior in multi-species foraging flocks of birds, and he programs agent-based models of these systems informed by field data to simulate and ask questions of their behavior.
