Squid-​​inspired electronic screens: How one professor builds tech solutions that replicate nature

Assistant professor Leila Deravi takes an interdisciplinary approach to investigating the proteins that drive complex biological systems and building materials in the lab that replicate those systems. Among her research projects are optical displays inspired by squids and a face cream that strengthens skin proteins to reduce wrinkles.

3Qs: Are We Living in a Matrix-style Simulation?
