Prof. Dr. hab. Joanna Hoffmann



Dr. Matthew Lutz

Matthew is a biologist with an interest in understanding nonhuman forms of cognition, especially extended and collective cognition. With a background in architecture, he began studying biological systems to understand self-organized construction in nature as part of his Master’s research at Columbia University. He went on to receive a PhD in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology from Princeton University, where the focus of his research was on the self-assembled structures built by ants out of their own bodies. More recently, he has been a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Max Planck Institute for Ornithology in Konstanz, and scientist-in-residence at Studio Tomás Saraceno in Berlin.
