More information and lecture notes


Our research is driven by an ongoing dialog between experimental measurements and theoretical modeling. We build our models on the most salient features of a system, and use our results as predictions and guidance for future experiments. Our diverse, interdisciplinary projects are characterized by the common goal of identifying organizing principles of complex systems.
