Past Academic Projects and Awards
We study "Whirligig" beetles in motion on the surface of water, via laboratory data provided by Dr Shashi Thutupalli (NCBS, India).
The data was processed using a minimum-cost flow network formulation to reconstruct (improved) individual trajectories for each beetle (see below). Then we invesitgate the motility of the beetles in relation to the number density of observed, for which we recover a sharp transition of high motility and low density to low motility and high density, as well as results on beetle "separations". We aim to follow on from this work by modelling the system, investigating the behavioural strategies of the beetles using Inverse Reinforcement Learning, and conducting new experiments.
