We are interested in how life emerges from collections of molecules, cells, and organisms; asking how bacterial cells grow, divide, and move; how collections of cells form patterns; and how and why discrete animal behaviors are generated by the brain. To answer these questions we combine physics-style experiments, advanced data analysis techniques, and theoretical modeling, and use tools from optics, computer vision, machine learning, and more.
