Carl Bergstrom is a professor in the Department of Biology at the University of Washington, and a member of the External Faculty of the Santa Fe Institute. His research interests range from evolutionary theory to animal communication to bibliometrics to whatever the other members of his group are working on at the moment.

Frazer Meacham is a Ph.D. student interested in mathematical modeling of evolutionary theory with a particular interest in why evolution has left us vulnerable to mood disorders

Ryan McGee is a Ph.D. student studying the way that information is encoded into the genome through evolutionary processes, and how information-processing sytems such as gene regulatory networks or neural systems evolve.
