Return to Home or Overview of Professional Activities.


The research group has moved to Emory Physics/Biology in 2009, and is still growing.


We are interested in theoretical physics problems on the interface of physics and biology. We work to understand how biological systems, such as molecular cells, organisms, and populations learn from their surrounding environment and respond to it (we call this "biological information processing"). The dream is that this may lead eventually to understanding the basics of how we can function reliably in an ever changing world.

We collaborate with many other scientists, and are always open to making new friends. Here's a list of some of the closest collaborators over the last few years. In alphabetical order:
