Postdoctoral researcher Jasmeen Kanwal entertained the public with her research on the evolution of cooperation in digital organisms with Soapbox Science at the Perth Festival of the Arts last week. The Womanthology blog wrote a nice summary of Jasmeen’s collaboration with artist Audrey Yeo to produce an engaging and interactive show for adults and children alike:
