Dr. Carlson is a professor of Physics at UCSB and director of the Complex Systems Group. Her work investigates robustness, trade-offs and feedback in complex, highly connected systems. Dr. Carlson develops multi-scale models that can capture small-scale details while also predicting large-scale behavior. These models can be used to control dynamic complex networks found in the brain. Dr. Carlson also runs the "Network Architectures of Brain Structures & Functions Program" at the Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics.
