We like to keep busy here in IceLab.  We also like to keep things flowing and moving, with new activities popping up and replacing or improving on old activities constantly.  From research to teaching to collaborative event experiments, there are plenty of ways to connect to IceLab.

Mathematical Modelling: our Grand Approach

The fossil record, social networks, phytoplankton, DNA folding, microbial economics, invasive species, and antibiotic resistance. IceLab research covers a wide array of scientific questions and traverses scientific disciplines. However, all IceLab research shares a common feature: an application of mathematical modeling techniques to scientific questions. By adopting a quantitative approach, our researchers can communicate across disciplines and identify new and exciting opportunities for collaborations and discovery.

Event Experiments

Here in IceLab we love creating opportunities for minds to meet and mesh.  We want open ideas and methods to transcend traditional disciplines and find new paths together through our event experiments.  We are looking for you to bring your brain to bear on these!  Current event types include IceLab lunch pitches, hive talks, data and tech talks, book club, friday fika and regular seminars.

The Latest from IceLab

We believe anyone should be able to grasp the findings of any scientist’s research studies.  To that end, we feature summaries of IceLab work that are accessible and interesting.  We also feature reports on event experiments, life in Science, and other bits and pieces.
