Over the past century, the discipline of physics has expanded exponentially, crossing boundaries into areas as diverse as biology and engineering. Network scientists in the lab of Albert-László Barabási analyzed how this growth drives technological breakthroughs that improve our lives.
A new strategy for mapping networks, from those underlying the Internet to the human brain, suggests possibilities for repairing damaged connections and disrupting dangerous ones.
Working at the Large Hadron Collider has been Nick DePorzio’s dream since his senior year in high school. In a couple weeks, that dream will become a reality when the physics student starts his co-op at CERN, which hosts the famous particle collider.
On Thursday, first-year engineering students participated in the annual fall event dubbed an “egg drop on steroids,” in which pumpkins are hurled off atop Gainsborough Garage, all in the name of learning about important engineering principles.

Northeastern professor Dagmar Sternad received the 50th annual Robert D. Klein University Lecturer Award on Tuesday and discussed her interdisciplinary research on how the brain controls the human body.
The following post was generously contributed by Santiago Gil, a postdoctoral research associate at Northeastern’s Center for Complex Network Research. Botond Részegh and Albert-László Barabási share a singular history. […]
World-renowned network scientist Albert László Barabási was installed as the inaugural Robert Gray Dodge Professor of Network Science on Monday, when he delivered a lecture highlighting his research on the “science of success.”
From studying the physics of a heartbeat to designing new cardiac disease detection methods, these five researchers have the heart on the brain.
Northeastern is part of an international consortium working to make all data from the field of high-energy particle physics available to the public.
If you grew up in the Northeast you know that there are good days for making snowballs and there are bad days for making snowballs. You know that sometimes, despite […]
The aesthetic beauty embodied by new research from associate professor of physics Latika Menon is the very thing that makes it useful for a range of advanced technologies.
