Faculty Fellow, SEAS Learning Incubator (LInc) Lola England de Valpine Professor of Applied Mathematics, of Organismic and Evolutionary Biology, and of Physics Area Dean for Applied Mathematics; Associate of Center of Mathematical Sciences and Applications
My work and that of my group centers around using mathematics to understand the organization of matter in space and time, particularly at the scale observable by our unaided senses, and is thus closely tied in with experience and experiments. I prefer to be led by problems rather than being limited by tools. Read more about Lakshminarayanan Mahadevan, Ph.D.
Faculty Director, SEAS Learning Incubator (LInc) Balkanski Professor of Physics and Applied Physics
Professor Mazur and his group study the dynamics of molecules, chemical reactions, and condensed matter on very short timescales—down to femtoseconds (millionths of billionths of a second). Physics in this ultrafast regime can only be studied using light, specifically using short laser pulses. The intensity of these short laser pulses is enormous and allows the creation of conditions that approach those found in stars and study a host of new phenomena. Read more about Eric Mazur, Ph.D.
Faculty Associate, SEAS Learning Incubator (LInc) Lecturer on Applied Physics
Kelly Miller received her B.Ed. in secondary school science from McGill University, and her Master's in physics from the University of Vermont. Kelly received her Ph.D. in applied physics from Harvard University in 2014. Read more about Kelly Miller, Ph.D.
