Simons Centre for the Study of Living Machines


We study molecules, cells, and organisms as living machines: products of natural selection which consume energy to achieve specific goals. Our research combines theory and experiment, and covers a range of length and timescales: from protein function, computational cell biology and evolution, to the physics of active systems.

We are supported by the National Centre for Biological Sciences and the Simons Foundation.

Cellular Communities

We aim to combine experimental and theoretical methods to understand the collective dynamical behavior of populations. Ex. competition and cooperation in bacteria
