Physical Systems

Researchers in the field of physical systems at NICO approach a variety of questions—why some countries have more major political parties than others, what energy-efficient materials remain to be created, how to make a robot juggle—from a physical science approach. They work to improve human-computer networks, medical robotics, and industrial hardware and software through problem-solving that relies on a firm basis in physics and engineering but also involves a deep understanding of biology, social dynamics, geosciences, and medicine.
