Science guest lecture: Max Kerr Winter on Biophysics: An introduction to current research

Course Dates: 18/02/21
Time: 18:00 - 19:30
Location: Online

The variety of life on Earth has been studied extensively by biologists for centuries, and is now an active area of research for physicists as well. The field of biophysics aims to use the mathematical and computational tools of physics to understand complex living creatures. In this talk, Max Kerr Winter will discuss various ways in which physics and biology come together, from the forces that shape growing embryos, to photosynthesis in plants, and how this exciting field is shaping the future of AI and biotechnology.

Max Kerr Winter is a theoretical biophysicist. He researches at the Francis Crick Institute, London, in collaboration with experimental biologists at the University of Cambridge.
