Research directions
  • How fast do complex systems change? Why do some fluids (like water) flow quickly while others (like honey) flow very slowly? How can biological systems build nano-scale ordered structures so quickly and reliably?

  • What statistical methods can we use to describe change in physical systems? In particular, what happens when motion takes place by localised rare events (cage hopping, avalanches, earthquakes...)?
