Congratulates to Qixuan on today’s publication in eLife of her article on the mathematics of hair. UCI News has more on this fascinating work.

Chris Rackauckas gave a workshop at JuliaCon 2017 titled “The Unique Features and Performance of DifferentialEquations.jl”. This workshop was videoed and serves as a tutorial introduction to the JuliaDiffEq ecosystem for scientific modeling.

Congratulations to Daniel for receiving a teaching excellence award today at the annual departmental party and award ceremony. Nice job Daniel!

Congratulations to Tao who passed his PhD defense today. Well done Tao!

Congratulations to Seth who passed his PhD defense today. Well done Seth!

Successful PhD defense

Congratulations to Catherine who passed her PhD defense today. Well done Catherine!

Our paper Cell Sorting and Noise-Induced Cell Plasticity Coordinate to Sharpen Boundaries between Gene Expression Domains is published today in PloS Computational Biology.

Congratulations to Qixuan who led the study with co-first author William Holmes.

Today marks the v1.0 release of DifferentialEquations.jl, written by Chris. DifferentialEquations.jl is a high-performance Julia suite of interactive solvers for many types of differential equations using the latest methods. More details about the package here.

New Lab Website

The Nie lab has a new website where we will share our research discoveries.

Professor Qing Nie recently was elected as a Fellow of the American Physical Society (APS). Election to Fellowship in the American Physical Society is limited to no more than 0.5% of the membership in the American Physical Society. The criterion for election is exceptional contributions to the physics enterprise; e.g., outstanding physics research, important applications of physics, leadership in or service to physics, or significant contributions to physics education. Fellowship is a distinct honor signifying recognition by one’s professional peers.
