Dr. Iyer-Biswas obtained her PhD doing theoretical physics at Ohio State U, and subsequently transitioned into doing experimental biophysics during successive postdocs at Princeton University and UChicago. Sri is currently an assistant professor of Physics at Purdue University, where her group uses high-precision measurements and first-principles-based physics theory to find emergent rules governing the apparently complex stochastic and non-equilibrium dynamics of living systems. In recognition of research accomplishments, Sri has been named a Scialog Fellow for Molecules Come to Life, a Showalter Trust Awardee, and an External Professor of the Santa Fe Institute. Sri is passionate about communicating the excitement of doing science to diverse audiences and was awarded the Outstanding Research Presentation award at the Gordon Research Conference on Stochastic Physics in Biology and the Spira Award for Outstanding Undergraduate Physics Teaching. Prior to becoming a physicist, Sri was a professional musician.
