Communities with strong mutualistic interactions tend to be more resilient, according to a new study by Filippo Simini, a postdoctoral research associate in Northeastern’s Center for Complex Network Research.
In new research, network scientist Alessandro Vespignani and his team show through computational modeling that a hypothetical attack involving smallpox may spread to two or four countries before the first cases are ever diagnosed.
Assistant professor of physics Toyoko Orimoto received an Early Career Award from the Department of Energy to study physics beyond the Standard Model.
Baruch Barzel, a postdoctoral researcher in world-renowned network scientist Albert-László Barabási’s lab, has worked out a method for mapping the interactions between cellular components, moving the team a step closer in its quest to understand, predict, and control disease.
Distinguished Professor of Physics Sri Sridhar is establishing Northeastern as the go-to knowledge resource for clinical and commercial translation of basic university research.
A little over a year ago, Justin Dowd’s boss bought a pack of colored chalk to write the day’s specials on the wall. Little did he know, that chalk would change […]
When economists talk about producers and consumers—the people that make stuff and the people that use it—they’re usually thinking about commodities like coffee, wheat, or oil. Not knowledge. That’s because […]
I’ve written about Dagmar Sternad’s work a few times, here and here and most recently here, when she had a bunch of middle schoolers come hang out in her lab […]
In 2009, Northeastern University network scientist Alessandro Vespignani developed a computational model that predicted the spread of the H1N1 virus. Three years later, new studies show that these predictions were highly accurate.
Physics professor Srinivas Sridhar and his team of researchers are developing new technology that could be useful for a variety of applications from detecting military threats to tracking epileptic seizures..
Alessandro Vespignani, the Sternberg Family Distinguished University Professor of physics, computer science and health sciences, believes that complex systems science has the potential to solve real-world challenges.
Paul Champion, professor and chair of the Department of Physics, uses femtosecond laser pulses to probe molecular vibrations that elude standard analytical techniques.
