IIASA Alumnus Evolution and Ecology
Peter Bednarik studied mathematics at the University of Vienna, where he completed his master's degree in 2011 with a focus on evolutionary game theory under the supervision of Josef Hofbauer. In his PhD thesis, which he completed in 2014 at the University of Goettingen, he focused on the evolution of cooperative behavior from an experimental perspective. From November 2014 to February 2015, he worked at the Department of Economics, WU Vienna, with Ulrich Berger and Rupert Sausgruber.
Dr. Bednarik joined both IIASA’s Evolution and Ecology (EEP) and Risk and Resilience (RISK) programs in February 2015 as a Postdoctoral Research Scholar. His current focus is integrating theoretical and empirical approaches from research on evolution of cooperation and cultural theory.
