Professor Boyce’s research interests include the molecular and nanomechanics of polymers, soft composites and soft tissues studying the elastic, thermal and kinetic properties of physical systems at the nanometer scale. Her leadership in the field of the mechanics of materials, both those that are manufactured and those formed naturally, has expanded understanding of the interplay between micro geometry and the inherent physical behavior of a material, which has led to innovative hybrid material designs. Models and results from Professor Boyce’s group have the potential to influence a range of industrial and academic fields from polymer processing to composite material design, tire mechanics, biological cells and tissues.
Jameel Jaffer, founding director of the Knight First Amendment Institute at Columbia University, has set the institute’s agenda for its first year with a newly assembled launch team. The institute, created with $60 million in funding committed by Columbia University and the John S. And James L.

She teaches a course in the history of western music, middle ages to baroque. While at the Columbia Global Center in Paris she participated in teaching music and art humanities as parallel and contemporary courses and she drew on her extensive knowledge of the visual arts to make connections between works of music and what students were seeing in Paris. From Brandeis University, says she strives to help students identify the constituent elements of a piece of music and understand the process behind it.
But the main driver for Zuker’s work is to understand the brain, the most complex organ on Earth. “Faith, happiness, hunger, hope, creativity, ingenuity all of that is nothing but electrical signals, the only language the brain understands. How, for example, do we transform fear into courage? Well, it happens in your brain and it’s encoded somewhere in those 100 billion neurons.”.
