Professor of Physics
Azadeh Samadani’s lab places a major emphasis in combining quantitative experimental methods with theoretical and computational approaches to study biological questions at the systems level. Her research interests include understanding directional sensing mechanisms in eukaryotic cells, non-genetic individuality and its effects on the fitness of a population, noise in biological systems, swimming microorganisms, population dynamics, pattern formation, predator-prey interaction, complex materials and microfluidic devices.
