In quantum materials, electrons interact in complicated ways. At the Flatiron Institute, Sophie Beck is modeling how these electron dynamics shape materials properties to help lay the groundwork for next-generation electronics.
It develops, deploys and maintains computational infrastructure — from supercomputers to desktop PCs — dedicated solely to the use of Flatiron researchers.
Underlying all biological processes are molecules and their interactions with each other. However, our ability to understand how these molecules function over biologically relevant scales remains very limited.
Columbia University, the Flatiron Institute in New York City and the Max Planck Society in Germany have created a partnership, called the Center for Nonequilibrium Quantum Phenomena.

This collaboration, directed by Greg Bryan of Columbia University, aims to understand and determine the evolution and initial conditions of our universe, using observations via a Bayesian forward modeling approach.

For distinguished scientists with a particular interest in diversity and inclusion
Scholars may engage in a variety of activities, such as working on scientific projects, starting new collaborations, mentoring junior scientists, and organizing or participating in workshops and career development events.
A major effort of the Flatiron Institute is the development and support of high-quality, open-source software for research.
