News and Announcements

Prof. Hastings, Distinguished Professor in the Dept. of Environmental Science and Policy, received a collaborative $1M grant from the National Science Foundation for "Integrating statistical physics and nonlinear dynamics to understand emergent synchrony and phase transitions in biological systems" for 2018–2022 and another NSF grant for "Metacommunity dynamics: integrating local dynamics, stochasticity and connectivity". Prof. Hastings' research area is also featured in his recent coauthored review article in Science, "Transient phenomena in ecology".
