From 2009 to 2012 Tatsuya Sasaki worked at the Evolution and Ecology Program, International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA), Laxenburg, Austria. He was a participant in the 2008 IIASA Young Scientists Summer Program, and returned to IIASA in May 2009 to continue his research on co-evolution of cooperative investment and voluntary participation in public goods games. In December of 2012, he accepted a second appointment as a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Vienna to investigate the emergence of sanctioning institutions with Prof. Dr. Karl Sigmund. Since June of 2014, Tatsuya has started the project "Joint evolution of indirect reciprocity and voluntary participation" supported by Austrian Science Fund (FWF): P27018-G11.

Tatsuya's work lies at the application of mathematics to biology and social sciences. His primary interests include evolutionary dynamics, evolution of cooperation, liberty and openness, origin of sociality (norms, institutions, etc.), and conflict resolution.

Tatsuya graduated from Osaka University in Japan in 1996 with a master's degree in complex algebraic geometry (supervisor: Kazuhiro Konno) and a bachelor's degree in mathematics. Following graduation he joined Okazaki Shinkin Bank, Japan, where his work was mainly involved with risk management. From 2004 to 2009 Tatsuya participated in a PhD course covering information systems science at Soka University (supervisor: Tatsuo Unemi), Japan, where he studied the evolution of cooperation numerically and analytically, and in spring of 2010, received his doctorate degree.

Tatsuya Sasaki was a worker of the ESF European Collaborative Research (EUROCORES) Programmes “The Evolution of Cooperation and Trading (TECT)”.
