David Schwab

Assistant Professor, City University of New York

David Schwab works in the area of biological physics, focusing on applications of statistical physics and nonlinear dynamics to problems in biology. Some of his current interests include how computations such as memory and attention are performed by networks of neurons, how cellular populations communicate and coordinate their behavior during development, how neural systems encode stimuli efficiently and implement error correction in the face of noise, and the role of spatial structure in evolution.
