Building an Interdisciplinary Science Culture: Beyond Reductionism

Join us on March 19th at 10 a.m. for the next event in our Building an Interdisciplinary Science Culture: Beyond Reductionism.

This event seeks to highlight researchers taking a leap forward in tackling increasingly complex systems and moving beyond reductionism to better understand natural, real-world dynamics. We will hear about the frontiers of interdisciplinary research and how to move beyond existing methods and approaches to address a wide range of societally important questions. The format will include short presentations from five speakers as jumping off points for break-out sessions that serve to deepen the conversation and interactions.

  • Ankit Jain, Postdoctoral Research Associate, Ulijn Lab, ASRC Nanoscience Initiative, Systems chemistry in shallow energy landscapes
  • Azriel Genack, Distinguished Professor Queens College, To reductionism and back: poles and zeros of the transmission matrix and sensitive detection
  • Rachel Fisher, Postdoctoral Research Associate, Elbaum-Garfinkle Lab, ASRC Structural Biology Initiative, Increasing complexity in simple liquids
  • Dan McCloskey, Associate Professor College of Staten Island, RFID-based study of the physiological need for togetherness
  • Ehsan Najafi, Postdoctoral Research Associate, Vörösmarty Lab, ASRC Environmental Sciences Initiative, Climate-induced extremes on the food, energy, water nexus and the role of engineered and natural infrastructure
