We do quantitative research focused on understanding the properties of complex dynamical systems by applying (and developing new) physical and statistical methods. We apply these tools to applications in neuroscience to gain a quantitative, physically based understanding of how the brain works.
We are located at The University of Sydney, which has a beautiful campus full of intelligent people and a vibrant interdisciplinary community that includes researchers in physics, maths, statistics, computer science, engineering, psychology, physiology, and biomedical science, all investigating the brain.
We are a part of Complex Systems Physics. Being an interdisciplinary group, we collaborate closely with diverse researchers, including information theory (like Joe Lizier), systems neuroscience (like Mac Shine), consciousness (like Nao Tsuchiya), and quantum mechanics (like Sahand Mahmoodian).
We are always looking for enthusiastic new students!
