Professor of Physics at the University of California, Davis, and Director of UCD's Complexity Sciences Center. Interests center on how natural processes compute. Favorite tools come from statistical physics, dynamical systems theory, information theory, and the theory of computation. Applications range from new substrates for computing and evolutionary theory to entomogenic climate change and network-enabled collective modeling platforms. See http://cse.ucdavis.edu/~chaos/.
