The Centre brings together strong research activity in non-equilibrium phenomena at King’s College London, from the Schools of Natural and Mathematical Sciences, Biomedical Sciences, and Social Science & Public Policy. The aim is to develop deeper insights into non-equilibrium processes by theoretical modelling, simulation and data-driven analysis.
The ultimate goal is address interdisciplinary challenges. e.g. How do we characterize, design and grow materials, and devices, with novel properties out of equilibrium? How do we control and exploit the stochastic processes inherent to biological systems? Can we use inference and information assimilation approaches from physics and biology to monitor and evaluate the state and direction of non-equilibrium environmental systems?
This activity is closely aligned to the EPSRC and the US Department of Energy Grand Challenges in systems far from equilibrium.
The Centre draws on a broad range of Academic and Industry expertise:
- With our members from a diverse array of Faculties in Kings and partner institutions including at Imperial College London, University College London and Queen Mary London.
- Advisory Board
- Industrial Partners
