Research fellow at the University of St Andrews
Jasmeen Kanwal

Welcome to the homepage of Dr. Jasmeen Kanwal! I am currently a postdoctoral research fellow in the School of Biology at the University of St Andrews, working with Prof. Andy Gardner on mathematical and agent-based models of social evolution. I did my PhD at the Centre for Language Evolution at the University of Edinburgh, investigating how languages evolve to become more efficient communication systems.

My academic interests are wide-ranging, but can all be connected under the theme of ‘complex systems science’—I have worked in physics, philosophy of science, linguistics, cognitive science, and now evolutionary biology. I once spent an amazing summer with like-minded folk at the Santa Fe Institute Complex Systems Summer School. You can read about my past and present research on my research page.

Another passion of mine is science outreach and education. You can find out about some activities I’ve been involved with on my science outreach & education page. I’m always open to doing more!
