Behavior, Waves and Bubbles: Three Scientific Stories from Princeton University Researchers

May 16, 2019, 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Daniel Cohen: “Collective Behaviors: How to Heal Injuries and Engineer Cocktail Pparties” — The ways in which birds flock, sheep are herded, and your skin heals are strikingly similar and are each beautiful examples of ‘collective behavior’,  We’ll discuss some of the work the Cohen lab does to engineer these behaviors in living cells as well as providing you with examples of how collective behaviors affect every-day life.

 Tom Zajdel: “The Radio Spectrum and You” — From the advent of mass broadcasting to the impending “internet of things,” we’ll briefly cover the century-long fight for dominance over the airwaves and how it has impacted, is impacting, and will impact our daily lives.

 Luc Deike: “Bubble, Bubble, Toil and Trouble: How Tiny Bubbles Ocean Waves can Affect Health and Climate” — All those little bubbles and spray from ocean waves are a means of transporting the contents of the bubbles — gas and potentially microorganisms — into the atmosphere and around the globe and we’ll discuss how this works and what some of the implications are.
