Eleanor received her B.A. in mathematics from the University of Chicago in 2010. Eleanor's research interests include the origins and functions of multi-scale organization, particularly in social systems; the evolution and dynamics of signaling and communication; and information processing in biological systems.
Eleanor has studied the social system of pigtailed macaques and is interested in extending the methods in those analyses to other social and biological systems. She is also interested in the mathematical methods required to address these questions, including tools from network theory, information theory, and stochastic calculus.
