Jeremy England, Associate Professor of Physics
Jeremy is a physics graduate student studying the stochastic thermodynamics of Markov models and their connections to the physics of systems that exhibit emergent information processing capacities.
Jacob Mitchell Gold
Jacob is a math graduate student who studies the behavior of disordered systems that are driven by fluctuating external fields with complex time-correlations. The goal is to characterize how driven steady-states in such systems accumulate information about the statistics of their environment.
Dr. Gili Bisker
Gili is developing stochastic simulations of aggregating particulate matter subjected to patterned external drive fluctuations, with the goal of defining and characterizing novel types self-assembly in the far-from-equilibrium regime.
Dr. Sumantra Sarkar
Sumantra uses simulations of far-from-equilibrium chemical reactions to study the emergence of self-replication and other hallmarks of biological behavior at the cellular and sub-cellular level.
Dr. Jordan Horowitz
Jordan is a Physics of Living Systems Fellow, and has worked on the theory of adaptation and computation in many-body assemblies. He brings expertise to the group in stochastic thermodynamics and the statistical physics of information flow in nonequilibrium systems.
Dr. Hridesh Kedia
Hridesh seeks to use analytical and computational techniques to study the emergence of sensing and decision-making behaviors in the dynamics of evolving mechanical networks subject to complexly correlated external forcing.
