computational biophysics

We are interested in developing a computational biophysics class will act as an elective course in the physics department and beyond. Together, we are designing the curriculum and reflecting on the skills necessary to accomplish each task as a means to effective teaching in the future.

Methods - Computational simulations, numerical analysis, data visualization, course design

People - Mac and Reece

mechanics of schools

Collective motion in schools of fish and flocks of birds provides awesome opportunities to learn how biological systems behave differently from engineered systems. Through high speed imaging of laboratory schools of fish, we aim to define the mechanical properties of an active material.

Methods - Build/design, soft matter, data optimization, image processing

More experimental projects to come after COVID!
