Welcome to the Keymer Laboratory

BIOLOGY: We study the biophysics and spatial evolutionary ecology of microbial assemblages in nanofabricated adaptive (habitat) landscapes. We combine theoretical biology with experimental biophysics to study systems microbiology in nano-scale on-chip ecosystems.

PHYSICS: We study the physics of the interface between organisms (cells) and their enviroment (niches). At the nanoscale, this interface blurs into a soft-matter physical system. We are interested in self-assembly and self-replication in biophysical evolutionary systems.
