Simon Garnier

My primary occupation in life is doing scientific research. I am a scientist, and I specialized in the study of collective behaviors. I study everything that can form a crowd, a school, a swarm, a flock or a herd. Think of ants, football fans or legions of tiny robots invading the solar system, and you will have a pretty good idea of what I am interested in my research.

Science and art have more in common that most people would think. Both are at first a matter of curiosity and passion. Both require years and years of patient learning and unsuccessful experiments to master a subject (except for some gifted people). And finally, both associate a strong discipline with an intense creativity. In short, scientists are always a bit artists, and artists are always a bit scientists. What I present in here is therefore the little artistic side of my more generally scientific personality.
