He is known for his studies of information processing in biological systems and for developing course-grained models of these systems. He is a Fellow of the American Physical Society for "his contributions to theoretical biological physics, especially information processing in a variety of living systems, and for the development of coarse-grained modeling methods of such systems" . He also has served in the chair line of the division of biological physics, from 2013-2018. Nemenman also was a founder of the q-bio conference, and is a general member of the Aspen Center for Physics. (Wikipedia)
