About Alison Sweeney's Work

Our research group synthesizes physical and evolutionary insights to discover novel biophysical mechanisms in evolutionarily diverse systems. Examples include solar transformer and radiative cooling functions in giant clams, phase-transition driven micropattern formation in plants and insects, light-guided camouflage in squid, and patchy-colloidal self-assembly for gradient-index optics in squid.
