Dr. Seppe Kuehn has joined E&E as an Assistant Professor and a core member of UChicago’s Center for Physics and evolving systems. Dr. Kuehn started July 1, 2020, after six years at University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign.
Dr. Kuehn makes quantitative measurements of ecological and evolutionary dynamics to understanding the fundamental principles governing dynamics in complex biological systems at two levels of organization. First, he uses model microbial ecosystems to study stability, adaptation and function of microbial communities. Second, he studies the structure of the map between genotypes and phenotypes in model microbial systems to discover the rule of adaptive evolution.
Welcome, Dr. Kuehn!
