NSF grant will help bring methods of network science to the world of solid materials, establishing new multi-university center

Northeastern will soon embark on a collaborative project to bring the methods of network science to the world of small particles and novel materials, with help from a substantial National Science Foundation grant.

A team of Northeastern researchers, helmed by Albert-Laszlo Barabasi, Robert Gray Dodge Professor of Network Science and a Distinguished University Professor, will be part of an interdisciplinary, multi-university effort to establish a center to study new ways of harnessing the power of network thinking to engineer new “shapeable particle-based matter,” the grant proposal reads.
