Many of the greatest challenges in science and engineeringrequire understanding how complex systems evolve, what makes them efficient,scalable and robust, and why they fail. Dr. Moses studies complex biologicaland information systems, the scaling properties of networks, and the generalrules governing the acquisition of energy and information in complex adaptivesystems. She uses computational and mathematical models to understand scalingproperties and search processes in distributed biological and computationalsystems including ant colonies, immune systems, and robot swarms.
