Author: Matthew Egbert
Bio Note: “A prominent theme in my research is the recursive self-maintaining organisation of life, and how this relates to its profound adaptability. This draws me toward the investigation of synthetic protocells and the origin of life, where mechanisms of behaviour are at their simplest, and towards minimally cognitive robotics and simulated agents, where fundamental concepts underlying adaptive behaviour and autonomy can be clearly defined and examined. As a Research Associate at the University of Hertfordshire, I am currently investigating self-maintaining behaviours in autonomous robots and simulated agents.” Homepage at http://www.matthewegbert.com
