Laboratory for Structure and Dynamics

Our research tackles the coevolution of structure and dynamics in complex systems. Recent examples include theoretical work on interacting contagions, network comparison, spread of ideas and creativity, as well as applied projects on infectious diseases, how the shape of forests coevolves with forest fires, and how the structure of metabolic networks drive the organization of microbial communities.
