His postdoctoral work was carried out with Bruce Levin at Emory University. Dr. Bergstrom’s research makes use of mathematical models and evolutionary theory to understand biological and social processes on scales from intra-cellular information processing to the population-wide spread of emerging infectious ailments. Along with teaching the undergraduate evolution course at the University of Washington, Dr. Bergstrom teaches courses on evolution and drugs, game theory and animal behavior, and mathematical biology.
