Programmable Active Matter Laboratory (PAM lab)
In the PAM lab, we are working at the intersection of engineering and physical sciences. We ask fundamental questions: What are the physicochemical representation of information in living and life-like systems? How to measure and quantify information content and information processing in living or life-like systems? We also ask practical questions: How to construct life-like materials or materials systems? What functions could they possess? What applications could they have? In particular, we seek to employ techniques in robotics and data sciences to build automation platforms for developing functional life-like.
